Our Mission

Supporting IU Bloomington through data & research

  • Developing and provisioning reliable information resources to support institutional planning
  • Conducting research studies to inform policy development, program assessment and strategic initiatives.
  • Providing leadership for the campus in the development and management of institutional resources used for research and analyses that support institutional improvement.
  • Establishing partnerships with campus offices, peer institutions and professionals to broaden institutional research capacity.
