The mission of the Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment (IRPA) is to empower the University community with the resources needed to make informed decisions that advance the mission of the University. The Office provides support and resources in data collection, analysis and reporting. These services are administered by the Director of Institutional Effectiveness and the Director of Institutional Research. In addition, the Office acts as liaison with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools-Commission on Colleges and supports the attainment and reaffirmation of regional and specialized accreditations.
