The mission of the Office of Institutional Research is to collect, analyze, maintain, and report institutional information to both internal and external constituents to support planning, decision-making, and compliance with external reporting requirements.
The Office of Institutional Research serves as the official source for institutional information and analysis for the University community and relevant external decision-makers.
We support the Wilkes University community and its decision-makers in their work on continuous review, evaluation, and improvement of the institution.
