Assessment and institutional research (IR) efforts at Goshen College support all campus areas in the wise use of available data to enhance:
- Effectiveness – Are we successful in achieving our desired outcomes in each area?
- Efficiency – Do we make wise use of our resources as we go about our work?
- Excellence – How can we continually improve the quality of our results?
Much of our work with data and reporting is done as part of our campus decision support team, a campus group of database and reporting experts from key areas of the institution.
