Planning, Research, Innovation and Effectiveness (PRIE)

Innovation & Effectiveness

PRIE plays a crucial role in identifying innovative programs and practices that positively impact student learning, success, and completion at CSM. They conduct research and review opportunities with external constituencies to advance the strategic goals and priorities of the college.

Serving as a thought leader and advisor to the Office of the President, PRIE identifies opportunities for innovation across campus and make recommendations to appropriate college stakeholders about the viability of potential innovation opportunities. Following these recommendations, PRIE collaborates with college stakeholders to prioritize and incubate pioneering programs and initiatives.

Additionally, PRIE facilitates an annual and multi-year data-informed planning and evaluation process, supporting the college's objective of continual improvement. This cycle enables knowledgeable decision-making and action on policies, programs, and practices that enhance the student experience and success.
