The Department of Institutional Effectiveness and Planning (IE&P) provides tools for planning and methods for documenting intended outcomes of programs and services. IE&P maintains a warehouse of current and completed department plans, program reviews, and accreditation-related documents in Insight, the Universities assessment management software. We provide workshops and consultation to faculty and staff to increase knowledge and awareness of planning and assessment practices and coach academic department chairs and operational directors on the development and refinement of outcome assessment plans.
Furthermore, as a part of the division of Planning, Budget & Human Resources, IE&P leads, coordinates, and supports selected initiatives and projects related to examining, improving, and reporting on effectiveness campus-wide in key areas of Utah Valley University's mission and strategic priorities.
