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 conducts research on a wide variety of topics of importance to the University. Recent topics have included a wellness survey for faculty and staff, a survey in support of the University’s ADVANCE grant, and a study of first-generation students on campus.
Research topics are prioritized based on the significance of the study for advancing institutional knowledge, the potential usefulness of results for improvement, and the availability of necessary resources.
