The Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness is available to help faculty and staff identify, locate or gather information for assessment and other research. The Office primarily focuses on studies pertaining to University effectiveness. As time allows, the Office may be available to assist with data gathering for faculty research. Generally, faculty are responsible for the design, IRB approval process, and data analysis phases of their research projects. For this type of project, the OIRE may act as a facilitator for data collection.
