OADS Leadership and Staff
The Office of Assessment and Decision Support (OADS) was launched in July 2011 to provide leadership and coordination in the areas of data collection and analysis, institutional research, and assessment, in support of University planning, the continuous improvement of educational programs, and the achievement of University mission, goals, and objectives.
The Office of Assessment and Decision Support integrates and enlarges upon the functions of the former Office of Planning and Institutional Research (OPIR) with expanded capacity in business intelligence, academic analytics, and assessment. The primary focus of OADS is the Main Campus, although many areas of data collection, reporting, and assessment address the University as a whole.
The evolving range of functions and services provided by OADS include:
Under the principal purview of the Office of the Provost, OADS collaborates closely with Main Campus faculty governance and academic leadership, University Information Services (UIS), the University Registrar, the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS), key data reporting centers on all three Georgetown campuses, central administration, and the Office of the President.
