Over the past two decades, planning, evaluation and use of results at Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College have morphed from a peripheral administrative activity into a pivotal leadership and management model for the institution.  The Office of Planning, Assessment and Institutional Research (PAIR) interacts with the entire campus to provide assistance in the planning, assessment and evaluation process.
