Offices of Institutional Research & Effectiveness

Who We Are 

The Offices of Institutional Research & Effectiveness at Fayetteville State University work deliberately to provide, as well as facilitate, the institution-wide use of data and analytics. We are partners with other University units in the production of data and information to reinforce decisions at all levels.

In addition, we also support the University's dedication to educational and institutional excellence through continuous improvement by:

  • Intensifying the university's capacity through assessment and informing data-driven improvement and advancement
  • Providing meticulous and responsive analyses of a broad array of data to support institutional and program decision-making
  • Publicizing accreditation and compliance standards and resources
  • Exhibiting effective leadership for accreditation and accountability

What We Do

The Offices communicate the findings for reporting and accountability purposes to our students, faculty and staff as well as to various university stakeholders, the UNC System and the US Department of Education. The processes we engage and the deliverables produced are foundational to the paradigm of institutional research as a change agent advocating data-informed decisions for institutional improvement.
