Mission Metrics

Mission Metrics is ORA’s internal quality monitoring program to ensure that our strategic priorities and accomplishments are transparent to the research community. We’ve reached out to faculty and researchers to gain their insight into distinguishing the operational metrics of most importance to them. Collab­orative feed­back became the basis for our reporting.  Periodic updates chart our progress against the plan and identify areas for continuous quality improvement.
