UCD Institutional Research

The role of institutional research is to provide data support for University planning and management activities directed toward fulfilling the goals and objectives of the University.

Institutional research is essentially a supporting function within UCD which aims to inform decision making and planning at senior management level.  The Director of Institutional Research reports to the Director of Strategic Planning and it is closely aligned to the activities of the Quality Office.

The Director of Institutional Research will supply statistical data and information for use in the quality review process which will include information on applications, student registrations, graduations, and retention rates.  This suite of statistics will give each unit under review a consistent and reliable source of information to begin their self-assessment process.

The following reports are available to the Head of School via InfoHub:
