Welcome to The Office of Research, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness
The Office of Research, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness (ORPIE) provides services that help campus leaders make more informed decisions to improve processes, programs, and services that impact student learning and success.
The office works closely with administrators, staff, faculty, students, and the community to support quality student learning and to foster continuous quality improvement.
