The University of Texas at Dallas

Our Mission: To support the achievement of UT Dallas’ mission in research, learning, teaching and public service through effective planning, institutional research and evaluation.

The Office of Strategic Planning and Analysis (OSPA) provides accurate, timely information and analytical support to the University community. OSPA is the central contact for official campus statistics and serves as a major repository for information on students, faculty, courses, semester credit hour production, degrees awarded, and facilities utilization. OSPA gathers, analyzes and interprets these data for use in planning, performance assessment, and policy decisions. Additionally, OSPA compiles and reports data requested by the State Legislature, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the U.S. Department of Education, and other state and federal agencies.

The Office of Strategic Planning and Analysis reports directly to the President.
