Our Mission...

The Office of Planning, Budget and Institutional Research (PBIR) provides key logistical, analytical and administrative support for the various planning initiatives undertaken by the university.


These functions include maintenance of the university's strategic plan website, analytical support for the Council on University Planning and Budgeting, President's Council, and the maintenance of Program Analysis data.


The Budget side of PBIR provides multi-year financial forecasting and inter-period financial analysis across all segments of the university.

The Institutional Research side sustains the data needs for all segments of the university, and is the designated clearinghouse for official data.


Rigorous internal and external reporting standards are applied to ensure consistency, comprehensiveness and reliability in all areas of analysis and data generation.
