ACTRI Evaluation

ACTRI's Planning, Evaluation & Tracking team supports the Institute's programs and leadership in efforts to develop goals, targets and relevant metrics of success, assesses progress toward those goals, and improves performance and management. ACTRI Evaluation unit uses an integrated "Balanced Scorecard-Monday" platform as a framework for program and institute planning.

The overall goals for Evaluation unit include:

  • Creating a more strategic organization which establishes greater alignment between program and institute-wide priorities and activities
  • Establishing a culture of transparency and accountability
  • Building a data and metrics-driven organization

The vision of the Evaluation team is to work hand in hand, and in partnership with other programs to support efforts to achieve success. We invite all programs across UCSD, UCSD Health Sciences, and UCSD Health to contact us to hear how we can support their needs.
