Abstract: The Office of Institutional Research (OIR) is a centralized resource to develop and provide timely, accurate, and consistent quantitative and qualitative information and analyses to internal and external constituents. We collect and disseminate facts and figures concerning the students, the university, as well as the faculty, administrators, and staff. This data is then used to support St. John’s planning efforts, program reviews, outcome assessments, and proposals for external funding; assist administrative and academic units in areas such as retention analysis, enrollment projects, and special studies; and initiate and support the development, administration, and analysis of outcomes related surveys. In addition, OIR publishes annual Enrollment Reports and University Factbooks, which serve as reference guides to facilitate planning and decision making efforts and satisfy the many ad hoc internal data requests as well as external data requests from governmental agencies and publications. This presentation offers a variety of visual aids and verbal descriptions on the many information packages generated by OIR. We will showcase our activities, tools, and resources through interactive media, posters, pamphlets, and reports. Come and learn more about the responsibilities of OIR and how we utilize data in order to better serve St. John’s and the general public.
