Administrative history

The Office of Institutional Research was established in November 1969 following the Report of the President, Review of Administrative Structures and Functions published in that year. Lead by a Director who reported to the President, the Office provided statistical data, information, reports and analyses to the President and the University Policy Committees upon request. It was considered vital to the University in ensuring the punctual provision and analysis of data essential to the development and execution of policy. In 1982, the name of the office was changed to Office of Institutional Analysis, or OIA, and it moved administratively to the Vice-President (Academic) area. In the 1980s, responsibility for OIA was transferred to the Vice-President (Priorities and Planning) area. By July 1989, OIA was again under VP (Academic) and Provost, but the reporting relationship shifted to the Vice-President (Finance and Services) in 1994. By 1991, the Office's role had been expanded to include the development of management tools and techniques with University administrative application. The Director of OIA is a non-voting resource member of the University Planning Committee. In 2002, OIA's reporting relationship shifted once again from the Vice-President (Finance and Service) to the Provost and Vice-President (Academic).

Directors of the Office of Institutional Analysis: B.S. Sheehan, 1971-1980; S. Braun, 1981 (Acting Director); E.A. Hillman, 1981-1984; Shepard Braun, 1984-2002; Doug Shale, 2002-xx; xxx; Jodi Magee, pre-2015-.
