Transforming higher education

Built for educators by educators

SPOL helps colleges and universities improve institutional effectiveness and better prepare students for success.

Our journey began in 2004 when we were born out of a FIPSE grant with Indian River State College and twenty other higher education institutions. Built for educators by educators, SPOL empowers schools to achieve institutional excellence through a data-informed approach to strategic management.

SPOL’s integrated strategic management software encompasses planning, accreditation, assessment, credentialing, and budgeting. This cross-functional focus enables visibility and accountability at all levels while building a clear path towards continuous improvement, institutional efficiency, and student success. With holistic, meaningful insights at your fingertips, you’re better positioned to provide a transformational educational experience and achieve your school’s mission.
