flowers Office of Institutional Effectiveness

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness (formerly the Office of Analysis, Planning and Assessment) is truly a service entity that assists the entire institution in improving accountability, making informed decisions and achieving strategic goals.



The Office of Institutional Effectiveness collects and disseminates information relevant to decision-making for strategic planning and improvement. This mission is accomplished through ongoing assessment, institutional research, and program review processes on campus; through the monitoring and reporting of performance indicators with the Kansas Board of Regents; and through accreditation activities at the regional, state, and national levels.



The Office of Institutional Effectiveness will assist the institution in achieving both its mission and its vision. The office will lead the institution in the integration of planning, assessment, institutional research, and program review to facilitate evidence-based decisions that support continuous quality improvement.
