We pride ourselves on collecting and disseminating reliable and valid institutional data in a responsive, timely and ethical manner.

What we do

OIRSA responds to requests for institutional data that come from appropriate parties both internal and external to the University. In addition to being responsible for Lehigh’s course evaluation program, OIRSA also initiates studies that will be helpful for institutional planning, policy formation, and decision‐making.

Why we do it

The Office of Institutional Research & Strategic Analytics provides leadership and support for all of Lehigh University’s institutional research and outcomes assessment.

Who we serve

OIRSA serves an array of internal and external Lehigh University audiences, ranging from university leadership including the President, Provost and Board of Trustees, to prospective students and their families, government agencies and the media.  Most requests for Lehigh-related data, whether from inside or outside the University, are processed by OIRSA.
