    Our Mission

    The mission of Office of Institutional Research is to supply reliable data to the University community and local, State, regional, and Federal agencies. The Office regularly supplies data for use by University personnel in planning, public relations, and grant applications. The Office also responds to ad-hoc requests for information and customized reports from departments within the University, and supplies information about programs and services; functions in a consultatory fashion for other University offices and departments wishing to perform their own research and statistical analysis; and annually reports on graduates and the freshman population.
