Institutional Planning and Research Overview

Overview

Institutional Planning and Research is an integral part of the institution’s planning and evaluation processes. The function of the Institutional Planning and Research Unit at GMU includes data collection and analysis services for a variety of internal and external users to supervise the reporting requirements for the university and for the purpose of accreditation.

The purpose of the Office is to provide evidence for demonstrating institutional effectiveness by systematically evaluating its academic programs and courses and its academic, student and administrative support services and in turn use the results of that evaluation in planning, budgeting, establishing priorities, and continuous quality enhancement of its academic programs and support services.
