Institutional Effectiveness

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) encourages a campus culture of curiosity, accountability, growth and achievement to support student success and continuous improvement. OIE provides user-friendly access to data and promotes information transparency. The office assists with translating data to useful information and leads assessment efforts to enhance effective decision making.

OIE also coordinates the submission of mandated SUNY Systems Administration reports and provides data to external publications.
