Institutional Research

Institutional Research

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 factual data related to university functions:

  • applications
  • enrollments
  • degrees granted
  • courses
  • demographics
  • test scores
  • grades
  • 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)(opens in new window), Statement of Aspirational Practice for Institutional Research(opens in new window), and we aim to be as effective as possible in support of student success.

Fact Book

The IR produced Fact Book is a list of links to census-based information shown through interactive dashboards.

Topics include: applications, retention, persistence, graduation, degrees conferred, course grades, and diversity measures.
