The Office of Institutional Research and Planning is comprised of the following three areas: Institutional Research, Campus Planning and Space Management, and Examination Services.
Institutional Research (IR) provides expertise in analysis of issues confronting higher education in general and UNL in particular. IR maintains, manages, and reports information on students, faculty and staff, academic programs, national and peer institutions, higher education trends, and agency data.
The role of Campus Planning is to prepare, update, and monitor the implementation of a Master Plan to guide campus growth and development. The Master Plan builds upon the institution's strategic plan and vision for the future, insuring that provision is made for required physical facilities in the form of land, buildings, and supporting infrastructure and establishes guidance for environmental and aesthetic considerations.
Examination Services offers a variety of testing and scoring services for UNL and other non-university users. Faculty and graduate teaching assistants can use Examination Services for the scoring of tests, surveys, and teaching evaluations.
