Cleveland State University’s Strategic Plan provides a basis for charting the university’s course and indentifies strategies for achieving its goals. The plan was updated in 2012 to incorporate new campus initiatives, identify priorities, and reflect the dynamic nature of planning.
The mission of this office is to continually encourage the pursuit of excellence in student learning outcomes of academic and other programs offered at Cleveland State University. The office attempts to raise each program to its next level of excellence and to engage the campus community in the systematic collection of information regarding student learning outcomes that, in turn, facilitate reflection and program improvement based on assessment findings.
All CSU academic programs are required to undergo program review on a 5 - 7 year review cycle. The campus conducts these required reviews with an eye towards accountability and a need for creating conditions that stimulate introspection, program planning, and a climate for reaching progressively higher standards of excellence in each department and curricular area.
The Office of Institutional Research and Analysis provides accurate, consistent, and timely information for management decisions at Cleveland State University. It also provides information needed to meet federal and state requirements and other ad-hoc and special reports as necessary.
