Institutional Research is a functional office reporting to the Vice President of Academic Planning and Effectiveness. IR projects focus on the impact of university policies and practices. The office can provide research support, generate success metrics for your project, and provide assistance with or conduct evaluations of the potential effects of programs or interventions. Studies conducted by the office utilize statistical analyses ranging from measures of association to complex predictions. Abstracts of selected projects are included here to give you an idea of the scope of our work.
Please note that IR does not, for example, make lists of individual students or provide up-to-the minute counts of registered students. Lists that have a legitimate purpose can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar. On the other hand, even though we are in Academic Affairs we are definitely prepared to work with any member of the LMU community.
