Institutional Research

The Office of Institutional Research assembles, verifies, and interprets a wide range of information concerning each campus and institute within the University of Tennessee System.

Information is analyzed and interpreted for: administrative decision-making processes, compliance with reporting requirements of external agencies, and response to ad hoc requests for statistics.

The Department’s primary responsibility is to ensure all information collected, both from its own office as well as from each campus, is consistent and accurately presented.
