Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment
University of Wisconsin-Platteville invites applications and nominations for the position of Executive Director of Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment.

The OIEA has been created to lead the University of Wisconsin-Platteville's assessment planning and implementation to support student learning and assure university success and effectiveness.
