About Institutional Research

The goal of the Office of Institutional Research is to deliver accurate, timely, and useful reports and analyses. These include requests regarding institutional data, policy analysis, and strategic planning.

Our office works with data custodians throughout the University to ensure that benchmark files for student, course, personnel, and finance data are accurate, consistent, and up-to-date. In addition, we also work with external agencies, federal and state governments, and peer institutional consortia.

We also maintain the University’s Fact Book and Common Data Set to help showcase Rochester trends as well as how we compare with our peers.
