Progress To Date
How UTSA Uses Metrics
UTSA's strategic plan aspires to achieve institutional transformation. Each year, UTSA collects, analyzes, disseminates, and acts upon many forms of data at the university, college, and unit levels. These data which include student enrollment data, graduation rates, research productivity, fundraising success, user satisfaction surveys, attendance data, and demographic information about faculty and staff, among other measures serve as valuable internal measures of our progress to guide campus leaders in both strategic and operational decision-making. Reporting trends reveal successes and inform the strategic allocation of resources through our Incentivized Resource Management (IRM) budget model.
The university regularly reports on these progress indicators in various contexts, including annual governance reports to the UT System, the Board of Regents, and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Key performance indicators are drivers of institutional prestige: they influence international university rankings, contribute to our Carnegie Classification, and make UTSA an attractive choice for civic, governmental, educational, and philanthropic partnerships.
