SAIR Proposal Tracks

Program Tracks

Proposals addressing all areas relevant to the practice of institutional research, accreditation, assessment, and strategic planning are invited, as are proposals relevant to community and two-year colleges, or the impacts of new technology. Preference is given to those sessions providing insight on how attendees can incorporate lessons learned at their institution.

The Accreditation Track welcomes proposals addressing issues related to regional accreditors such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Higher Learning Commission, and national and professional accreditors.

The Assessment Track welcomes proposals related to the critical evaluation of student success, and of administrative and academic support functions.

The Community College Track welcomes proposals addressing issues specific to two-year colleges, and other issues that are especially impactful to these institutions.

The Institutional Research Track welcomes proposals addressing the collection of data to inform institutional decisions through effective analyses.

The Planning Track welcomes proposals addressing how strategic planning, campus planning, and other planning processes shape institutional agendas, identify meaningful outcomes, and help effect change.

The Technology Track welcomes proposals that demonstrate creative and innovative uses of technology, such as business analytics, to support Institutional Research and Effectiveness activities.
