The Office of Institutional Research (OIR) reports institutional and contextual data to help St. Cloud State University and its stakeholders better understand the environment in which it operates and the students that it serves. OIR collects, analyzes, reports, and facilitates the use of data and information, for the purpose of continuously improving SCSU’s academic, operational, and administrative programs. Although top priority is given to projects requested by the president and the provost, the staff consults on and supports research and assessment projects across the university. OIR staff also participate on important university committees including Academic Assessment, Enrollment Management, and Strategic Planning, and support budget and planning by forecasting enrollment.
We encourage SCSU faculty and staff to visit the OIR SharePoint site, which includes all reports on this website and more. Please note, this is an internal site and login is required.
