The Department Planning Profiles were originally developed in 1984 by the College of Letters & Science. In the late 1990s they were expanded to include departments in the other schools and colleges, as a result of a joint project between Academic Planning and Institutional Research, the Madison Budget Office, and the College of Letters and Science. Planning for this all-campus update started in 2013 as a collaboration of APIR, MBO and InfoAccess.
