Carnegie Mellon University

At the Forefront of Institutional Analytics

Building on a Carnegie Mellon culture dedicated to continual innovation and renewal, the Office of the Vice Provost for Institutional Effectiveness and Planning will lead CMU further into an era of data-informed self-evaluation in support of the university's mission and strategic goals.

Reporting directly to the Provost, the Vice Provost for Institutional Effectiveness and Planning, serves as the senior most institutional research leader for CMU, overseeing the Office of Institutional Research and Analysis and providing oversight for internal and external reporting and the university’s assessment plan.

The office plays a critical role in leading, championing and facilitating data-driven decision-making at CMU, including data governance and integrity and provides strategic guidance for planning, evaluation, data analysis and research methodologies that support key initiatives and stakeholders across the university.
