Administrative Unit Planning and Evaluation

The Office of Strategic Insights (OSI) provides leadership for college planning and institutional effectiveness; facilitates information-sharing for decision-making and organizational development across the college; and provides support for accreditation. OSI works with administrative unit staff, led by Provosts and Vice Presidents, to ensure that college units are advancing NOVA’s mission and strategic plan to enhance institutional effectiveness and improve student success.

In Spring 2022 and Summer 2022, OSI obtained feedback from the Administrative Council and faculty teams regarding planning and assessment efforts at NOVA. Administrative units will report on specific strategic plan metrics and may not report annually.

  • Year 1 (2023-24): Yield Rate, Enrollment
  • Year 2 (2024-25): Course Success, Retention
  • Year 3 (2025-26): Transfer, Completion, Employment

Administrative units will report on specific strategic plan metrics on a three-year cycle. Please see the table below for the reporting schedule.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Diana Bharucha, Senior Research Analyst, OSI.
