Mission Statement

The Office of Analytics and Institutional Research (AIR) is a strategic partner in creating a culture of data-informed decision making to advance Ithaca College’s mission.

AIR is committed to:

  • Establishing centralized data management and governance systems that promote understanding and collaboration among students, alumni, faculty, staff, and administrators as they work to foster the intellectual, social, and emotional growth of our students
  • Collaborating with members of the campus community to transform institutional data into strategic, accessible, and actionable information

What we do:

  • Gather and/or coordinate data for compliance reporting (NYS Education Department, U.S. Department of Education, etc.) and other external reporting
  • Maintain and support the virtual Ithaca College Survey Research Center
