Rooted in the method of scientific inquiry, institutional effectiveness is the systematic collection, analysis, organization, warehousing, and dissemination of quantitative and qualitative information concerning the characteristics and performance of the University. The goal of institutional effectiveness is to provide quality information such that informed decisions and effective planning can be accomplished by University faculty, staff, and administrators.
The long-term strategic course of the University is set by the FSU Strategic Plan 2015-2020. The Offices of Institutional Research and Effectiveness are engaged in a continuous process to track the performance indicators of the three priorities and nine major goals of this plan
The FSU Strategic Plan is located below.
