Office of Institutional Research
The Office of Institutional Research (IR) provides information, research, analytical services, and data analysis that supports evidence based decision-making, strategic planning, accreditation, assessment and maintenance of statistical and historical data records at Clarion University.
In addition, the office is responsible for providing official data and information about Clarion University for reporting purposes to the state and federal government and to other external agencies (such as US News & World Report, Peterson's, The College Board and many others). The Office is also responsible for Clarion University's Common Data Set and online Fact Book, which are both published annually. The Fact Book contains statistical information about the university by year including: enrollment data, retention and graduation data, information about faculty and staff, and instructional data.
To provide broad support of the university's vital efforts we urge our campus clientele, as well as the general public, to use the links provided on this page. The Fact Book can be an excellent resource for many of these initiatives, as well as other links to data available here. We hope these resources will address many of your data needs, and we invite you to contact us with suggestions. If you are unable to locate what you need, please contact our office for assistance.
Due to the high volume of ongoing compliance reporting and research projects IR handles, ad hoc data and research requests are responded to on a case-by-case basis according to timing and workload. Please be understanding.
