Office of Institutional Research and Analysis
Welcome to the Office of Institutional Research and Analysis, the office through which the University monitors itself. We collect data about each of the departments on campus and use it to generate reports that are used by the departments as well as the administration. The office is a reliable source for authoritative information about the institution to serve both academic and administrative functions. The Office prepares standard reports for internal and external users.
The mission of the Office of Institutional Research and Analysis is to serve as a centralized data source providing meaningful information for effective decision making.
