Development of the U of S Achievement Record

Institutions hold themselves accountable because they care about the quality and impact of what they do, and because they value their relationships with the public and with stakeholder groups. Accountability takes many forms, including annual reports, speeches and presentations by leaders, and meetings with interested communities. All forms of accountability must be backed by information that is clear, transparent, accessible and that is presented with a minimum of commentary. It is essential to convey institutional achievements widely, succinctly and based on evidence.

* In the past, the online Achievement Record was promoted with an accompanying printed brochure, but there is much more information available online, including expandable details at the college level. The Achievement Record is now available solely online, in its full-functional form. Some of the indicators are also presented in the 2013 President’s Report.
