Institutional Research

The Office of Institutional Research (IR) facilitates WPI’s emphasis on data-informed decision-making, providing accurate and consistent information used for institutional planning, policy formation, and analysis in support of institutional goals.

The office is the primary source for official institutional data for both internal and external reporting purposes. IR plays a pivotal role in the areas of data reporting, data integrity, survey research, assessment, and analytics. IR adheres to the Association for Institutional Research’s Code of Ethics & Professional Practice.
