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!

Submitted on behalf of Yvonne Rogalski, Faculty Chair of the James J. Whalen Academic Symposium:

The quality and diversity of the research and creative projects highlighted in this year's symposium demonstrated the incredible talent of our students and the importance of active learning as a key part of an IC educational experience. On behalf of the committee, we wish to congratulate all of the presenters for jobs well done. Thank you for participating in the Whalen Symposium and sharing your work with the entire campus community.

In addition to the 420 student presenters, and over 60 faculty sponsors, the faculty moderators, abstract reviewers and judges and the staff and student volunteers were a critical part of this year’s event.
