The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA) at Syracuse University was established in 2006. Led by Dr. Elizabeth “Libby” Barlow, we are part of the Division of Enrollment Management. The office is located at 400 Ostrom Avenue and is open standard University business hours.
OIRA is responsible for collecting and reporting data related to all aspects of the University’s operations. Our data collection and reporting activities are a combination of regular and ad hoc projects. We work both with campus partners (such as senior administration, academic and administrative departments, and campus committees) and with external agencies (such as US Department of Education, New York State Education Department, and guidebook publishers). All requests for official University data should be directed to our office.
