Office of Institutional Research

The Office of Institutional Research (IR) was created in 2011 to advance the mission and strategic plan of SUNY Canton. The office promotes a campus-wide commitment to excellence and continuous improvement through the systematic-review of programs and services to facilitate evidence-based decision making.

  • Closing the assessment loop by facilitating the use of research to make informed resource allocation and policy decisions
  • Providing surveys, focus groups, and other research methods as needed by departments
  • Compiling information from internal and external sources for accreditation reports, program retention and graduation rates, assessment in the major, retention efforts, and state (NYSED) and federal agencies (IPEDS)
  • Streamlining the data request and distribution process to ensure data consistency and accuracy
