OIR MISSION & STAFF
Detailed Mission Statement
The central mission of the Office of Institutional Research (OIR) is the collection, organization, and analysis of institutional and other data to support institutional management, operations, decision-making, and planning functions. Included in this central mission is systematic information processing of University-wide data leading to broadly based institutional perspectives and understanding. Also included are studies related to projected needs, program objectives, and efficiency and effectiveness in the use of institutional resources.
Apart from the office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, OIR meets information needs of the offices of the President, the Senior Vice Presidents, the Vice Presidents and the Deans, in that priority sequence. OIR responds to additional administrative offices and administrative committees as time and resources permit or as determined by the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, to whom OIR reports. Additionally, OIR has routine data and reporting activities and procedures designed to meet the needs of constituencies both internal and external to the University.
