As you may know, the campus is at a critical stage in preparing for a successful WSCUC (WASC) reaccreditation. In order to meet time-certain deadlines for the review process, we have reprioritized resources in Institutional Research (IR) and Information Resources (IRES) through the end of March to develop, enhance, and launch key data, analytic, and reporting systems, both for use in the reaccreditation process and for building a sustainable foundation for ongoing, data-informed decision-making and continuous improvement.

I ask for your patience with these two offices during the spring semester as they complete this important work. Please hold any nonessential new requests until after March 31. For urgent requests, please contact Michael Bourgeois (

I appreciate your patience as we make these important transitions to a more functional and reliable means of provisioning data for decision-making.
