The Office of Institutional Research, Assessment, and Planning serves the university by providing timely, reliable data in support of policy formation, decision making, assessment, and planning. To get started, please see our annual publications: Fast Facts, Who Are Our Students? and the more detailed Statistical Portraits.

The Office of Institutional Research, Assessment, and Planning is the primary source for official campus statistics, complying with federal, state, and university reporting standards and requirements. We coordinate or complete the major college guides and professional association surveys. Our office also conducts student surveys and special research studies in support of university policy formation, assessment, and accountability.
