Instructional Planning and Administration (IPA) is a UC Davis-developed web application designed to make all aspects of academic scheduling faster and easier.
IPA grew out of the needs of the academic coordinators on the UC Davis campus. It was envisioned by the UC Davis Administrative Application Development Initiative (AADI) and designed in conjunction with a volunteer committee made up of staff members from many departments on campus. Product design and development was performed by the DSS IT Developers Group.
