The Division of Institutional Research collects, analyzes, and interprets a wide variety of data about the university and its external environment for the purposes of assessing  institutional outcomes, measuring institutional performance against strategic planning goals, comparative analysis with peer institutions, and reporting to campus constituencies and external agencies. Together, Academic Planning and Institutional Research will strengthen the alignment of data, analysis, and decision support with broad academic and strategic planning.
