Institutional Research is responsible for identifying, collecting, and maintaining the University-wide data needed for University management processes and the completion of external reporting requirements.
The Division coordinates the efforts of the 17 University campuses through interaction with the Directors of Institutional Research on each campus to collect, analyze, report, and warehouse quantitative and qualitative data about their institution's students, faculty, staff, curriculum, course offerings, and learning outcomes.
The Division is charged with improving the accuracy, reliability, and timeliness of all data collected and increasing and simplifying access to the information needed by General Administration, campuses, and the general public.
The Division conducts policy research and analysis in support of the University’s planning and decision-making activities. In addition to policy research, the division develops and maintains University-level assessment processes. These processes include planning and implementing data collection and analysis activities and coordinating the use of findings with General Administration divisions and campus offices.
