Research and Policy Analysis

Research and Policy Analysis provides information and analysis for decision-making, strategic planning and accountability, and institutional effectiveness. 

The office supports the President's vision to be Coastal Virginia's Premier Private, National Liberal Arts University by:

  1. providing management-level information and analysis for planning, decision-making, accreditation, academic program review, assessment, and accountability, and
  2. supporting multiple institutional planning, assessment, research and accountability projects. Additionally, the office collaborates with the Virginia Wesleyan community to support the quality enhancement process and the rigors of accreditation. 
  3. providing coordination and fosters accountability for compliance related matters (NCAA, accreditation, state and federal).

This website includes management reports, charts and tables, presentations, and numerous dashboard indicators that are routinely updated. If you need assistance, please feel free to contact Donald Stauffer, Senior Researcher and Policy Analyst, in Godwin Hall (Suite 228), adjacent to the Birdsong Presidential Suite and the Trinder Center for Advancement.
