Mission, Vision, and Core Values
The Office of the Vice Provost for Institutional Effectiveness (VPIE) is responsible for coordination of institutional strategic planning and SACS Commission on Colleges reaffirmation of accreditation; assessment of academic programs; academic accountability; academic affairs training; and a variety of activities related to the functions of institutional research. We report directly to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. By university policy, our office provides the official information about the University. In this capacity, we provide reports to the U.S. Department of Education, the Legislative Budget Board, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and the University of Texas System. In addition, we fulfill other internal and external requests for information about the university. We partner with other vice presidential areas to address issues beyond strict academic affairs concerns, such as student success, facilities, compliance, and service quality issues.
The mission of the Office of the Vice Provost for Institutional Effectiveness is to provide logistical support and relevant, reliable information for institutional planning, accreditation, assessment, and accountability as UTSA moves to premier public university status. We also support the Academic Affairs community in fulfilling the public trust through a system of training and compliance.
To be recognized within and outside the University for providing outstanding expertise and information for planning, assessment, accreditation and accountability, assisting UTSA in its goal to become a premier public university.
The core values of our office reflect those of the University: integrity; excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration, and innovation.
