Ongoing Projects

IT Strategic Plan

PRPA is assisting the Data Stewardship Council with the development of the University’s next IT Strategic Plan.  In alignment with Educating Illinois, the plan will set the strategic framework that will position the University to meet the information technology needs in the near future.

Academic Program Profiles Project

In collaboration with the Provost’s Office and AIM, PRPA developed a standard set of metrics related to both undergraduate and graduate degree programs.  The metrics, called Academic Program Profiles, are designed to provide annual data updates for use in ongoing program assessment and planning.

Retention Study for UCollege

This study will identify what characteristics, if any, are common among degree-seeking undergraduate students who are not retained from their initial fall semester to the subsequent fall semester at Illinois State.  Identification of these characteristics will help University staff improve current programs and practices designed to promote retention of students.
