Institutional Research
College Index

The College Index, 2008/09-2012/13, contains a variety of quantitative data or indicators related to measuring institutional effectiveness. It can serve as a type of “report card” for the college.

The indicators are aligned with the five priorities articulated in the strategic planning document, Institutional Priorities 2008-2013. As indicators for institutional effectiveness, they help measure CSM's progress in addressing the priorities along with the objectives associated with those priorities.

Please note: 
Data become increasingly more meaningful as they are tracked over time: one is able to discern trends, comparing data elements to the original “baseline.” Each indicator has a profile associated with it that defines the methodology for measurement (accessible via links in the document); definitions include information about the span of time the indicator encompasses along with the source of the data.

New data will be posted as it becomes available.

Fall 2013

The Institutional Planning and Budget Committee (IPBC) on December 11, 2013 adopted new indicator targets for the 2013/14 academic year.

Spring 2013
Note: the following draft identifies indicators (highlighted in yellow) which the Integrated Planning and Budget Committee (IBPC) has determined will no longer be reported in the College Index beginning in Fall 2013.
