Institutional Research

The Office of Institutional Research (IR) provides information about the University for the purposes of decision-making, strategic planning, mandated reporting and program review. The office responds to the reporting needs of the University administration, the academic departments, the state and federal government, and non-governmental organizations that support institutional research in higher education. We use a variety of procedures to collect and analyze data, and report the results, and aim to provide information that is clear, valid, reliable and useful.

The Office of Institutional Research is responsible for reporting the official college data to internal and external parties. We are a service office. The information we provide is intended to help the University community understand its institutional makeup.
