Administration and Planning

Manages and supports University initiatives.

Who We Are

The Office of Administration and Planning (OAP) comprises four integrated functions, including Board of Trustees administration, Planning, Institutional Research, and Program Review. Our mission is to provide leadership and analysis to inform decision-making and strategic direction at all levels of the University and to drive the implementation of these decisions, drawing on each of OAP’s areas of expertise.
