First, our unit supports the university community by reporting timely, accurate, and consistent data for internal decision makers and external reporting requirements. Secondly, our unit supports assessment activities across campus, helping to continuously improve academic and non-academic programs through thoughtful planning and data-driven decisions.  


The Institutional Research and Assessment unit is responsible for:
  • supporting and coordinating assessment activities,
  • preparing required reports and surveys,
  • responding to institutional data requests, and
  • supporting accreditation efforts
