The University of Alabama values and supports a robust process of institutional effectiveness as a tool to enhance innovation, student learning, service, and stewardship.

Institutional effectiveness is defined as a set of ongoing, regular, and intentional processes which are undertaken with the purpose of improving and assuring the quality of the University at all levels through:

  • planning and goal setting,
  • identification of outcomes, measurements, and expectations, and
  • evaluation, analysis, and use of data to inform decision-making.

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness advises all academic and non-academic units across campus on program approval and review, accreditation issues and all assessment activities. To contact OIE, you may either send an email to oie@ua.edu or call at 205-348-2748. Contact information for a specific staff member, is available on the OIE Staff page.
