Institutional Effectiveness



Institutional Effectiveness (IE) provides leadership on USF's regional accreditation and support for discipline specific accreditation requirements including annual reporting to the Florida Board of Governors.


As part of USF's efforts toward continuous improvement, IE administers academic and administrative assessment efforts as required by the Florida Board of Governors (BOG) and Southern Association of Colleges and School Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and facilitates reporting about academic, student affairs, and administrative assessments to these agencies.
