Institutional Research

The Office of Institutional Research provides leadership and support for data-based decision-making and evaluation efforts of the University of Scranton community. We work collaboratively with other departments to coordinate the institutional research functions of the University; these include:

  • Managing the requirements of compliance reporting and providing University data to external agencies
  • Publishing historical and trend information — an annual Fact Book, enrollment, graduation, and retention reports — and responding to ad hoc requests for data
  • Guiding effective data governance practices, with a focus on data quality and maintaining University data standards
  • Conducting research, providing data and analysis aimed at improving programs, services, and the experience of students
  • Facilitating University participation in national survey programs involving students, faculty, and staff and use of findings
  • Providing consultation and support to research and evaluation efforts of other offices and departments on campus
