About Us

Academic Performance Solutions (APS) is a holistic decision-support platform that enables individuals across institutions—provosts, deans, department chairs, Institutional Research staff, and more—to quickly access data and peer benchmarks around course offerings, faculty workload, course completion rates, department-level costs, and other key performance indicators. Members of APS leverage the resources and consultative services included with their membership to help them incorporate this data into key academic and operational decision-making discussions and processes. Learn more about how your peers are working hand-in-hand with us to further APS' goal of helping institutions have more data-informed strategy and planning discussions.
