The College’s institutional research director supports College leadership, administration and academic departments by enhancing the empirical basis of their planning and decision-making. This involves gathering, analyzing, and reporting on a broad array of datasets on Emory College and its institutional peers, both quantitative and qualitative.

Data collection spans topics including student and faculty demographics, the student experience, teaching and curriculum, trends in program development, faculty assessment and grant funding.

Institutional research oversees the annual report of the College, and assists departments with their program review process, and works with other university entities, including University Strategic Planning Office, University Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness, and University Registrar.
