The Office of Planning and Institutional Performance (PIP) is the focal point for FGCU’s institutional effectiveness efforts and accreditation. It gathers, analyzes, and uses data to inform institutional planning and effectiveness processes, policy development, and decision-making; facilitates program review; and coordinates and supports university-wide strategic planning efforts.   In fostering accountability and excellence, PIP provides guidance and mechanisms for assessment in such areas as educational outcomes, effectiveness in teaching and learning, distance learning and faculty productivity.  The Office of Planning and Institutional Performance uses planning strategies and assessment to do the following: assist the University to improve its programs and services, including international dimensions and community outreach for adult learners; and to achieve regional and specialized accreditation.



The Office of Planning and Institutional Performance  will be the principal source for information on the status and performance of the university and the office of first choice for assistance in the pursuit of institutional effectiveness and continuous improvement in all its myriad forms.
