Requests for Information from Analytics and Institutional Research: 2017-18 Policy

Analytics and Institutional Research will be involved in several large, time-intensive new projects (data governance, enterprise data warehouse construction) during 2017-18.  In order to continue to be responsive to the needs of the campus community and effectively manage our workload, we will require all faculty, administration, and staff requests for information to be submitted using our online information request form, available via the link on the right side of this page.

Information available to students resides on this website.
