Office of Planning & Analysis

The University community has three managed data systems from which to obtain information related to data for decision-making, planning and reporting.  Depending on the type of information needed, these data systems are:

  • Business Intelligence and Predictive Modeling (BIPM).
  • University Assessment Data (UAD).
  • External Reporting Data (ERD). 

BIPM and UAD data are used to provide reports and analysis for internal decision-making and strategic planning.  ERD are data used to report to external entities such as the Kansas Board of Regents or IPEDS.
