This information is used by members of the University community for:

  1. Mandated reporting requirements
  2. Administrative decision-making and policy formulation
  3. Academic assessment
  4. Institutional planning
  5. Release to the general public.

The office serves as a central repository for statistical information regarding the University and responds to requests for information from clients within and outside the University. OIRP conducts research on special topics, and complies with state and federally-mandated reporting requirements.
