About/Staff

About

Institutional Research and Effectiveness (IR&E) assists Wright State University in achieving its mission through the collection, analysis, and distribution of information. IR&E works with data from internal areas and sources, including information related to students, programs, and facilities, and external areas and sources, such as national surveys, to provide an assessment of Wright State that is as comprehensive and complete as possible.

Mission

The mission of Institutional Research & Effectiveness (IR&E) is to provide official, accurate, and unbiased information and analysis about the university in support of institutional planning, decision-making, and reporting obligations.

Staff

The Institutional Research and Effectiveness (IR&E) Staff strive to deliver consistent, reliable, and accurate data and information to their constituents in a timely manner. Using the latest data gathering, reporting, and presentation techniques, IR&E works to make data and information as accessible and meaningful as possible. 

IR&E respects and guards individual student privacy as outlined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). IR&E reports data and information in aggregate form only so that individual data and responses cannot be tracked or identified. Occasionally, and only for official business, such as academic advising or dean’s lists, data specific to individuals are shared, but within the guidelines of FERPA.
