Strategic Planning and Assessment

The Division of Student Affairs is purposeful about strategic planning and assessment. Through a collaborative and engaging process, we create intentional assessment plans based on our division’s strategic plan, which was developed in alignment with NIU’s strategic plan framework.   

Intentional reporting throughout the year contributes to the annual report process and provides transparency for the students we serve. As a values-driven division, Student Affairs is proud of the continual planning and thoughtful implementation of the numerous programs and services provided by our departments.

Student Affairs strategic planning and assessment also provides leadership and consultation about division-wide planning and assessment initiatives, monitors and assesses student learning and other measurable outcomes, collects, manages and distributes campus-wide data about students and initiates and manages data and related research projects on a variety of topics for staff and graduate students in the division.
