Glatfelter Hall

The purpose of the Office of Institutional Analysis is to provide objective, systematic, and thorough research in support of the College's goals, planning, and decision and policy formation. The Office provides the administration, trustees, faculty, and other internal and external constituencies of the College with information concerning the characteristics and performance of the institution and as necessary, appropriate research assistance.

To achieve this goal, the Office performs three broad functions. These are:

  • Conducting analyses and providing accurate and timely information useful to policy- and decision-makers;
  • Collecting, analyzing, disseminating, and promoting the use of information for assessment, decision-making and planning;
  • Providing internally consistent reports to external groups -- federal, state, and accrediting agencies, other organizations such as HEDS, AAUP, US News, and college guidebooks.
