About Institutional Research

The Office of Institutional Research supports the University’s planning and decision-making activities, requests regarding institutional data, assessment, policy analysis, and strategic planning. We provide information to outside agencies, federal and state government, and peer institutional consortia. We also produce the University Fact Book annually, as well as various other reports and analyses showing Rochester trends and peer comparisons. Our goal is to deliver accurate, timely, and useful reports and analyses. To this end, Institutional Research works with data custodians throughout the university to ensure that benchmark files for student, course, personnel, and finance data are accurate, consistent, and current.

Data, Reporting, and Analytics Requests
Please be as concise and as detailed as possible in your request. If this is a request for student data, indicate which student populations you are looking for (school, program of study, degree, time status, demographics, current vs. census etc.). The standard time frame for processing ad hoc data requests is 5-10 business days assuming appropriate data permissions are in place. Complex reports and dashboards will take more time and may require more detailed specifications. All requests for data are subject to approval and compliance with UR data governance policies. Once you have submitted your request, you will receive a confirmation from the Office of Institutional Research department within two business days.
