Institutional Effectiveness

IPAR supports planning efforts across campus by collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data for informed decision making and to promote institution accountability.

IPAR supports the preparation and organization of information for accreditation, approval and recognition of programs.

To ensure current, quality academic programs, all university academic programs follow WSU Regulation 3-26 (PDF) and conduct a program review every five years. The review is conducted through a combination of internal and external evaluations with the goal of identifying pedagogical strengths and weakness of programs for our students, our accrediting agencies, and the various communities that we serve.
