Office of Institutional Effectiveness

The mission of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) is to support Georgia Southern University’s commitment to academic excellence and personal attention by providing leadership for assessment, institutional effectiveness, planning, and accreditation activities to all academic, student support, and administrative units and programs.

Guided by a dedication to a culture of systematic self-reflection, evidence-based decision-making, and improvement, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness promotes assessment practices for planning and implementing strategies, as well as measuring their effectiveness toward achieving each unit’s goals as they contribute specifically to the strategic goals of the University.
