Institutional Research and Planning

Our Mission

To facilitate and support research and analytics needs in the areas of student information, budget, human resources and facilities through the integration of campus data, analytic and reporting tools and human expertise.

Institutional Research, Analytics and Decision Support

What We Do

Institutional Research, Analytics and Decision Support provides data analysis for decision making, policy development and review, and provides official data for internal and external audiences.

We provide analytic and reporting information related to:
  • resource allocation decisions;
  • establishing campus goals and objectives;
  • developing campus performance metrics;
  • developing enrollment management projections.
As needed, we conduct surveys (students, alumni, faculty/staff, and employers) and special research studies to assist in policy making and decision making.

We empower people to seek, find, and understand information. We serve the university community to the best of our ability, embracing the highest levels of quality in service, communication, and professionalism (more About IRADS).
