What is Institutional Research?

The Office of Institutional Planning and Research offers an array of data and other decision-making support services to all aspects of the college and external organizations. Its primary purpose is to facilitate the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of institutional data as well as other information to support college planning, decision-making, and marketing.  Specifically, the office has the following four main objectives: 

  • Reports: This office provides Snow College statistical information to federal and state agencies as well as national publication organizations and the general public.
  • Research & Responsiveness: This office supports accreditation, internal ad hoc studies and other research in support of faculty/staff scholarship and institutional improvement. In addition, this office serves as the clearinghouse for IRB (Internal Review Board) requests which are required by any student, faculty, or staff project involving Snow College students and/or student-generated data.
