UM Systemwide Measures

The Performance Funding measures are part of a state-wide plan for allocating state funds based on the University's performance in several areas. Missouri's four-year public higher education institutions are allowed to choose measures from among four common categories and then set goals using state guidelines:

  • Student Success and Progress
  • Increased Degree Attainment
  • Quality of Student Learning
  • Financial Responsibility and Efficiency

A fifth measure that is “institution specific” is also required.

The goal of the University of Missouri Accountability measures is to help provide transparency and accountability regarding the university's overall performance. They are closely tied to the University of Missouri System Strategic Plan. These metrics are common between the four campuses; goals are based on targets set by each campus.
