Institutional Research Effectiveness

Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness

Our mission

The Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness supports UHV decision-making in planning, evaluation, and program assessment for accrediting bodies and other internal and external stakeholders. The mission is accomplished through data collection, analysis and reporting; providing training to others in these activities; and monitoring and tracking the assessment activities associated with the institutional effectiveness process.

Our unit outcomes

  • OIRE will provide timely, accurate, consistent, and easy to access information for both internal and external constituents
  • OIRE will serve as a resource and support for assessment and accreditation-related activities in academic and non-academic units within UHV.
  • OIRE will continually improve the efficiency and effectiveness of information collection and distribution

What we do

Institutional Effectiveness (IE) works primarily to ensure that all areas of the university use sound assessment methods to evaluate the quality of their services, and that the data collected through annual assessment is helpful for decision making and improvement.

Institutional Research (IR) translates the volumes of data collected by UHV and other public data sources (e.g., US Bureau of Labor, Census Bureau, National Student Clearinghouse, etc.) into reports that demonstrate UHV's accountability to external regulators and assist UHV employees in planning and assessment.
