Institutional Planning & Analysis

The Office of Institutional Planning & Analysis (IP&A) at California State University San Marcos actively collaborates with campus stakeholders, inspires institutional transformation, and impacts student success by supporting evidence-based planning, decision making, and action; serving as a trusted source of high-quality, official information reported to internal and external stakeholders; and seeking new and innovative ways to make data accessible, intelligible, and transparent.


  • honors the centrality of student success in our work;
  • is people focused, forging meaningful relationships, promoting work-life balance, and investing in professional development;
  • works with integrity, ensuring accurate, ethical, and appropriate use of data;
  • engages in critical thinking and creative problem-solving;
  • furthers collegiality, teamwork, and mutual respect; and
  • fosters a culture of data-informed decision making.

Our website contains a wealth of information about student, faculty, and staff demographics; application, admission, and enrollment patterns; retention, graduation, and student success; recurring and ad hoc surveys of the campus community; and course evaluations. Additional reports are available to those with a campus login through the Reporting and Data Analytics Repository (RaDAR). IP&A is also responsible for coordinating the campus Data Request Process.
