Institutional Research

Mission Statement

Institutional Research (IR) is committed to collecting and analyzing data which is accurate and timely to enhance decision-making, strategic planning, and assessment of the University. IR provides data to internal (e.g. President, Vice President’s, Deans, etc.) and external constituents (e.g., the federal government, the Utah System of Higher Education and others). IR serves as a resource to support continuous improvement through assessment.


  • Communicate/disseminate data to stakeholders (President, VP’s, Dean’s, Department Chair’s, Directors, and external constituents, etc.) that is available, timely, and dynamic.
  • Provide good customer service and resources to IR’s stakeholders.
  • Maintain compliance with all state and federal reporting deadlines (e.g. IPEDS, NCAA, USHE).
