The Institutional Research (IR) Office actively supports the university's mission by contributing to the collection, organization, and comprehensive analysis of institutional data. This support encompasses a wide range of services including the provision of research-oriented datasets, the execution of intricate statistical analyses, and the effective communication of findings via visualizations, dashboards, publications, and various other tools.
To request any data-driven deliverable (e.g., a new report or modification to an existing report, a dataset for research, a research project or any other resource), please complete the following Data Request Form. This is essential in order for IR to manage its workload and to serve the Howard community in a timely and strategic manner.
The timeframes for data delivery are contingent upon the complexity of the request and the availability of our dedicated team. As a general guideline, we strive for a turnaround of 2-3 business days. For projects with impending deadlines, we kindly request as much advance notice as possible. Additionally, if further insights into your data request are needed, we welcome the possibility of arranging a meeting to address any nuances.
Before proceeding with your request, we kindly ask that you review the information readily accessible on the IRA dashboards. If the specific information you're seeking is not available through these dashboards, we invite you to submit a data request form outlined below.
Thank you for your cooperation, and we look forward to working together to provide you with the data-driven insights you require.
