About Academic Effectiveness
The Office of Academic Effectiveness, previously known as the Office of Planning and Analysis, is housed within the Division of Academic Affairs, although much of the data collection, analysis, and reporting that takes place within the office encompasses the entire institution. Every staff member within Academic Effectiveness is dedicated to assisting UCO faculty and staff in meeting the university of mission of helping students learn. We do this by working diligently to provide accurate and meaningful data and analysis of data, in addition to providing tools that will allow information to be presented in an understandable and useful way.
The Office of Academic Effectiveness, the Office of Institutional Research, and the Office of Institutional Assessment are located in several offices on the first floor of the East end of Thatcher Hall. The primary contact is:Ms. Tracey Romano, Executive Office Assistant Thatcher 107 Box 138 email@example.com 405-974-3342 Fax: 405-974-3843
