The departments in APBE share the goal of creating a university-wide emphasis on the importance of strategic thinking and planning by managing the opportunities to connect unit-based conversations that help shape and record meaningful plans for the university’s future.

Through the work of APBE, the convergence of academic, academic support, facilities, infrastructure and financial planning allow us to chart our progress in achieving our UB 2020 vision and help ensure that both unit-based and university-wide strategies stay relevant and on target toward meeting our larger objectives in regard to academic strategic strengths and service-based transformations.


The Office of Institutional Analysis (OIA) has the primary institutional responsibility for the collection and analysis of quantitative and qualitative information on the institution, its students, its faculty, its programs, its publics, its practices and its services.
