Measuring Progress

We have defined a set of key metrics aligned with our strategic priorities to measure our success.

In addition to institutional metrics, each school/college has specific student and faculty success metrics. Each administrative unit has specific operational metrics to assess their progress.

These metrics are reported to the Community and to the Board of Trustees on a regular basis throughout each academic year. Regular reporting of metrics will ensure that we are on track and taking appropriate action to meet our strategic objectives.
