Institutional Research, Planning and Effectiveness


Table of Contents

The planning component requires that IRPE coordinate all planning activities (annual and strategic), provide data to assist in planning for the University, provide guidelines and training for planning, and maintain planning documentation. After August 1, 2005, when the three separately accredited institutions—Troy State University Dothan, Troy State University Montgomery, and Troy State University—officially merged to become Troy University, transition to a new Institutional Planning and Effectiveness (IP & E) online system began. Planning information prior to August 2005 can be found in the IRPE Archives.

The new system was developed to meet the SACS-COC Core Requirements and Comprehensive Standards (Core Requirement 2.5 and Comprehensive Standards 3.3.1, 3.4.1, 3.5.1, and Federal Requirements) for Institutional Effectiveness and Planning. Planning in the online system involves annual identification of the planning objectives (including strategic planning objectives) for each College and Division to implement during the next academic year. After the planning objectives are entered into the online system, responsible administrators report monthly on the percentage of progress made toward achieving each objective. In the fall and winter of each year, planning objectives that are one hundred percent (100%) accomplished are captured in an evidence of improvement file for inclusion in annual achievement reports and the Chancellor’s Mid-Year Review.

To further aid in planning and effectiveness, the Associate Vice Chancellor for Institutional Research, Planning, and Effectiveness serves as liaison to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges (COC) and the Montgomery IRPE Coordinator serves as liaison to the Alabama Commission on Higher Education (ACHE).
