Amy Tan Portrait with Quote
"In America, nobody says you have to keep the circumstances somebody else gives you." - Amy Tan, English/Linguistics BA '73, Linguistics Studies MA '74, Honorary Doctor of Letters '02, Novelist

The Institutional Research and Strategic Analytics (IRSA) unit will coalesce complex, disparate, and siloed data to synthesize experiential learning inside and outside of the classroom in support of building a culture that leverages data-informed decision-making and fosters improving student success and closing equity gaps. Using a social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion mindset, IRSA will establish consensus on the analytical needs of the institution and build a robust data infrastructure to elevate how we use historical and current information to guide strategic priorities to support students from pre-matriculation to timely degree completion and beyond.
