Institutional Research and Analytics
The Office of Institutional Research and Analytics’ (IRA) mission is to contribute to informed decision-making throughout the University and to ensure that planned academic program strategies align with institutional compliance requirements. IRA coordinates, conducts, analyzes, and disseminates assessment results to maintain and improve academic programs and student services. Additionally, IRA provides data from select University data sets to academic and administrative units and assists with data analysis and interpretation; satisfies federal, state and accrediting agency reporting requirements; and responds to an array of external requests, including those from higher education institutions and associations, and college information guides. Finally, IRA manages institutional accreditation and related academic compliance requirements (e.g., new academic degree program proposals; changes to existing degrees or certificates; approval of off-campus locations) on behalf of the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.
