Missouri State University

KPI Overview

The long-range plan, Fulfilling Our Promise, outlined four goals for Missouri State University to help it achieve its core mission of educating persons. Annual performance measures—called Key Performance Indicators (KPI)—will provide an objective standard for determining the extent to which Missouri State achieves its goals and how it compares to other universities.

The KPIs focuses on 15 important institutional measures, including five items that are part of the State of Missouri Performance Funding Formula. For each measure, up to five years of trend data will be presented below; newer measures will have fewer years. The KPIs will provide accountability along with serving as a guide for longer-term planning, priority setting and budgeting.
