What We Do
The Office of Institutional Research and Planning supports academic, administrative and physical planning for the institution and researches and reports information about the university and its environment. The office is responsible for the collection and maintenance of official institutional databases, internal and external surveys, and serves as the official reporting voice for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The Director reports directly to the Chancellor and is a member of the Chancellor's Senior Administrative Team.
The mission of UNL’s Office of Institutional Research and Planning is to support university decision makers with a skilled, proactive team. Our purpose is to plan for the campus, respond to inquiries, ask and answer the central and strategic questions about the university’s position, progress, and future. We empower people to seek and find information. We serve the university community to the best of our ability embracing the highest levels of quality in service, communication, and professionalism.
