Subject: Institutional Research and Planning Reporting Structure

The Office of Institutional Research and Planning (IRP) is responsible for managing and reporting all non-financial data about the university to internal and external audiences. Previously reporting to the President, effective February 1, 2011, IRP began reporting to the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs. This change will allow the important work that IRP conducts, which includes, for example, responding to federal and state accountability demands and supporting outcomes assessment and accreditation efforts, including the self study underway for our Middle States reaccreditation effort, to be carried out as effectively and efficiently as possible. IRP will continue to support the entire campus, so if there is a particular project or request you have for IRP to complete, please coordinate through the Provost’s Office.
