Purpose of the Office of Institutional Research

The purpose of the Office of Institutional Research is to serve as an information repository for the university, to assist in maintaining university, college and program-specific accreditations, and to gather perceptions on student and faculty experiences at UDM. By extracting, organizing and analyzing data the office distributes information for use by campus leaders in making decisions aimed to improve our students’ opportunities to achieve their goals.


The IR office is located on the fifth floor of the Fisher building on the McNichols Campus, reports to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and coordinates its work with many other offices on campus.  The office is staffed by the Interim Director of Institutional Research, Shelley Wagnon.
