Mission and Vision

The office collects and analyzes data that are disseminated for decision making and reporting purposes.


The vision of the Office is to become a national and regional model through assessment and accreditation.
The Institutional Research and Assessment Office supports International Institutional Accreditation on both European and American levels and promotes and provides support for program accreditation by being an assessment resource, for the academic units, on matters pertaining to assessment and curricular and program improvement.
