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.
