Institutional Research

Institutional Research collects and analyzes data to help guide internal academic decisions. This office provides information to internal and external constituencies in support of its mission to provide accurate, timely, and useful information. The office collects and analyzes data about the university to enhance the quality of the decision-making process for those leading the institution.

A major portion of effort is dedicated to federal reporting and state reporting through the Independent Colleges and Universities of Texas (ICUT) as well as providing university information to guidebooks and other providers of university information. The Institutional Research office coordinates the Institutional Effectiveness reporting for the university and serves as the primary contact for the Colonial Group Data Exchanges. The Office of Institutional Research also coordinates SMU's institutional effectiveness reporting.
