In 1969, Wesley Sommers was appointed as the Special Assistant to the President in charge of planning and institutional research, which officially established University Planning. University Planning then became a part of the newly created Administrative Services Division in 1971 when Sommers was named as its head. This merged the functions of the Business Affairs Division and Sommer's existing responsibilities, including long-range planning, institutional research, physical facilities, and the computer center. The Budget planning function was also a part of University Planning until 1976 or 1977 when it was added to the campus Controller's responsibilities, which was later known as the Budget and Financial Services. Around 1978, University Planning was formally named Planning and Institutional Research and in 1982, the office was renamed to the Planning and Information Management Office. The Planning and Information Management Office responsibilities include information management, institutional research, administrative computing, planning, space and facilities management, maintenance of Stout and UW-System policies, and capital budget development. In 1984, the Campus Planning Office became the responsibility of the Physical Plant Director. The Administrative Data Processing became a part of Planning and Information Management in 1986. For the early to mid-1990s, the Planning and Information Management Office title cannot be found in the Student-Staff Directories. Circa 1996, the Budget, Planning and Analysis Office grew out of the Administrative and Student Life Services Division. In 2010-2011, the Office of Budget, Planning and Analysis became the Office of Planning, Assessment, Research and Quality (PARQ). The Office of PARQ is responsible for strategic planning and accountability, institutional research and assessment, the Applied Research Center, quality initiatives and university policies.
