|The Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness Support (IRES) is striving to provide The University of West Florida the opportunity to excel in electronic information decision support and reporting. The movement toward automating information has led this office to focus its initiatives on developing the University Planning Information Center (UPIC) including the Office of Institutional Research (OIR) and the UWF Fact Book web sites. By initiating and pursuing the University Planning Information Center, faculty, staff, and the university as a whole can grow to achieve success in Strategic Planning and data retrieval initiatives and have access to timely information such as University Assessments, Profiles and through the Fact Book, data related to specified reporting periods and more.|
