As part of Academic Affairs, the mission of the Office of Institutional Research is to provide data, information, expertise, and leadership in support of the mission, vision, and strategic priorities of Worcester State University.
We provide data to all University departments and offices in support of decision-making.
· Submit reports and data as required by state, federal, and accrediting agencies in a timely manner.*
· Work closely with the Office of Institutional Assessment with the University's participation in national assessment studies, assisting with data gathering, analysis and reporting functions.
· Submit responses to information/data requests from external organizations in a timely manner. Communicate institutional information to the University community and the community at large, through a variety of media.
* Mandatory reports to external agencies (e.g., governing boards
and State/Federal agencies) are high priority projects.
In all of its activities, the office will ensure the confidentiality of information and that information is released only to appropriate individuals and groups in accordance with applicable federal and state laws.
