  • to provide for the professional development of its members;
  • to provide for the dissemination of information and the interchange of ideas on problems of common interest to its members;
  • to contribute to the advancement of post-secondary education in its fullest and broadest implications; and
  • to foster a collegial spirit of unity and cooperation among persons having interest in and activities related to institutional research, planning, and assessment.
