The long-range plan, Putting Students First, outlined six strategies for Missouri State University-West Plains to help it achieve its core mission of educating persons. Annual performance measures—called Key Performance Indicators (KPI)—provide an objective standard for determining the extent to which Missouri State achieves it's goals and how it compares to other universities.
The KPIs focus on 12 important institutional measures. For each measure, up to five years of trend data will be presented below; newer measures will have fewer years. The KPIs will provide accountability along with serving as a guide for longer-term planning, priority setting and budgeting.
