    Performance Accountability Reports (PAR) for the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) 

    The Performance Accountability Report (PAR), an annual reporting requirement for the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC), provides an opportunity for MHEC, colleges and universities, and governing boards to review and evaluate institutions’ efforts to advance the goals of the State and fulfill institutional missions. The PAR operates on a five-year cycle. At the beginning of each cycle, institutions must establish five-year benchmarks for a series of indicators established by MHEC. The Board of Trustees approves each year’s PAR. There are 28 performance indicators, and many include subgroups. The indicators are organized by the 2022 State Plan for Higher Education which are Access, Success, and Innovation. Additionally, 11 student characteristics are required to provide additional context around institutional missions when reviewing the indicators. Each year of the cycle, colleges must update the trend data for the characteristics and indicators.
