IESI Mission

The mission of the Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Initiatives office is to demonstrate USD’s commitment to: student learning and success; high standards of quality and effectiveness in all of our educational activities; and institutional integrity, sustainability, and accountability.

These three areas of commitment are visible in the goals of our Envisioning 2024 strategic plan, in which USD will set the standard for an engaged, contemporary Catholic university by the year 2024, and are consistent with the values of our regional accreditor, the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC).
