How many students are enrolled in or completed a particular major or minor?  How many faculty and staff does Ithaca College have?  What are IC's retention and graduation rates?  How has the College's racial/ethnic diversity changed over time?  Where do our alumni get jobs or go to grad school?  All of this information, and much more, is available on the Institutional Data page of IR's public website.

Institutional Research serves as IC's comprehensive source of historical and trend data about the College.  Over the years, we have increased the amount of information we make available on our public website.  We have also added interactivity and improved the visual appeal of the analyses.  Visit our site to find out more!
