Institutional Research

The Institutional Research Unit (IRU) plays a pivotal role in assessing institutional effectiveness by gathering relevant data from all University units and performing extensive analysis and periodical reporting to facilitate data-driven strategic decisions.
 
Scope of Responsibility
The scope of the Unit's responsibility is University-wide. The Unit provides official reporting to the entire University community including the Board of Trustees, the Colleges and their departments, and other academic and administrative units. The Unit also assumes the responsibility of generating and supervising the development of official University data reports.
 
Pervasiveness of Institutional Effectiveness:
The Office of Institutional Research coordinates with all programs at the University.  Each program performs a detailed evaluation of its effectiveness using a variety of assessment tools. Results of these assessments are used to establish actions intended to improve program(s). Program assessment results and correlated action plans are forwarded to the Office of Institutional Research on a yearly basis for analysis, thereby allowing for appropriate modifications in institutional resources, programs and services.
