Institutional Research Data Sources and Information

University Institutional Research and Reporting requests are ever changing and the data and tables we utilize to address our work is continuously being improved. Consequently, we are adding new resources to this site which describe these changes to our informational systems.

Below, you will find information regarding key census dates; recent updates; tables and data dictionaries in production; in development changes and/or additions that will soon be moved into production; future projects that are still in the research and specification cycle; and data guides that explain how the data is derived or created.
