Institutional Research


OIE collects, analyzes, warehouses, and disseminates data about the University to facilitate institutional planning, policy formation, and decision-making at the program, department, division, school, and university levels:

  • The Factbook provides more in-depth information in three primary categories: faculty, students and staff. Historical information is also housed in the Factbook.
  • The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. 
  • IR Reports & Resources provides information related to enrollment, student success, and analytics, as well as IR-related resources for benchmarking and comparisons."

In addition, University Analytics, spearheaded by Business Intelligence (BI), provides data from internal and external sources, including access to OIE- and Admission-related dashboards, in order to help facilitate data-driven decisions.
