Key Performance Indicators

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are performance measures used to assist CNM in evaluating success and opportunities for improvement. CNM has recently revised its Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). This page is expected to be updated later this summer.

Each year, the Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness at CNM reports on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that define and track our progress toward strategic goals.

KPIs help to support institutional self-analysis and decision making, identifying opportunities for improvement, and public accountability. Data is updated on an annual basis, or as information is available, and CNM assesses college needs and KPIs regularly to confirm that each indicator continues to be relevant.
