About the Office of Institutional Research
The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment is the data and information
source for the University, responding to both internal and external requests to
include guidebook and sourcebook submissions
As the decision support arm of Academic Affairs, IR&A maintains and develops
studies, reports and analyses addressing specific concerns of the Provost and the
academic units and disciplines. Among many responsibilities, the office assists with
assessment needs, coordinates Federal IPEDS reporting, develops the University
enrollment forecast, and generates retention and graduation rate statistics.
Additionally it furnishes data and information to the University System.
The Institutional Research and Assessment staff provides reporting continuity, a
depth of project history and technical experience sustained by versatile computing
and research skills.
About the Freshman Survey
Each year, hundreds of two-year colleges, four-year colleges and universities
administer the Cooperative Institutional Research Program Freshman Survey to
hundreds of thousands of entering students during orientation or registration.
The survey covers a wide range of student characteristics: parental income and
education, ethnicity, and other demographic items; financial aid; secondary school
achievement and activities; educational and career plans; and values, attitudes,
beliefs, and self-concept.
Published annually in "The American Freshman", the results from these surveys
continue to provide a comprehensive portrait of the changing character of entering
students and American society at large.
The CIRP Freshman Survey is designed for administration to incoming first-year
students before they start classes at your institution. The instrument collects
extensive information that allows for a snapshot of what your incoming students are
like before they experience college. This collection contains the Freshman surveys
conducted at UNH in 1991 and 1992.
This collection is open.
