All Academic and non-academic units, including departments, Colleges, and divisions are required to submit an IE report.

Although writing the report can be time consuming, it’s a valuable opportunity to review accomplishments, enumerate our goals, and refocus our attention on the University’s mission. Additionally, working on the report provides time for thoughtful consideration of resources and the articulation of an effective course of action to continue accomplishing our goals.

The Council for Assessment and Planning (CAP) appreciates the time spent on writing the Institutional Effectiveness reports and most of all the guidance you provide to shape the future of your unit or academic department.  

The following four sections must be completed by all units for the IE report:

  • Executive Summary – Brief synopsis of accomplishments and planning activities (should cover last fiscal year's accomplishments and planning activities for current and upcoming fiscal years)
  • Resource requests – prioritized listing of specific near-term resource requests
  • Assessment of Institutional Effectiveness report – the report on the IE plan that was in effect for last fiscal year
  • The revised IE plan – goals, objectives, and assessment measures for next fiscal year.
