Institutional Strategy and Analysis (ISA) bolsters NC State’s mission and vision by providing consistent and reliable data that informs and supports the university’s strategic decisions. ISA collaborates across all campus constituencies and levels of governance to identify NC State’s information needs, collect and manage data, provide analysis, and disseminate clear and accurate findings to give momentum to the university’s forward progress.

In order to more efficiently and effectively serve the university community, ISA now provides increased functionality through the management of strategic planning, including implementation planning, and the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program. The collective function of all parts of ISA further serve the diverse information and reporting needs of NC State and external entities in a timely, unbiased and responsible manner.
