Institutional Effectiveness

Our office generates and disseminates official data on select topics for use by the SUNY Plattsburgh community and beyond. Internal data is used to assist university policy makers and planners in the quest for continuous quality improvement. Our office also coordinates the submission of mandated SUNY Systems Administration reports while providing data to external publications (U.S. News, etc.)

Quick Facts

These facts are designed to be a quick reference guide for frequently requested, publicly available official data. Official data is updated on or about November 1, after fall census is completed and approved by SUNY.

Faculty and staff may access more detailed reports in the Institutional Effectiveness Google Drive folder using their Plattsburgh credentials. Note: Login is required.
