Institutional Research - CSU, Chico

Welcome to the Office of Institutional Research at California State University, Chico. We believe that data is only as valuable as the decisions it enables. We provide the University with the best possible factual data related to university functions: applications, enrollments, degrees granted, demographics, test scores, grades, courses and outcomes. We also provide services for assisting other campus units in conducting assessments of their programs and technical support in data analysis and reporting.

We believe in the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) Statement of Aspirational Practice for Institutional Research and we aim to be as effective as possible in support of student success.

Institutional Data
