Office of Institutional Research

Mission Statement:

To advance Husson University's mission of preparing students for professional careers by providing comprehensive information to support:

institutional planning and decision making;
policy formation;
evaluation of effectiveness;

and coordinate responses to:
external accountability mandates;
internal and external requests for information about the campus.

To meet its mission the office provides services in three major areas:

External Reporting: Prepares and submits official reports mandated by the federal government as well as requests from publishers of college guides and other institutions. Aids in fulfilling requests from the media, local government and the general public.

Planning Support: Identifies, gathers, analyzes and organizes institutional data to support University requirements for strategic planning, policy analysis and institutional research (student characteristics, admissions, financial aid, enrollment, retention and graduation rates, degrees awarded, teaching workloads, employee characteristics, research productivity, facilities utilization).

This information is disseminated to the University community through annual reports, websites and responses to ad hoc requests.

Institutional Effectiveness: Responsible for coordinating campus-wide and department or program level assessment of academic programs and administrative departments to support the University's quality improvement efforts.
