Analytics & Institutional Research Mission

Analytics & Institutional Research (AIR) 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. AIR 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. AIR staff also participate on important university committees including Academic Assessment, Enrollment Management, and Strategic Planning, and support budget and planning by forecasting enrollment.
