Office of Institutional Research launches Interactive Factbook

Submitted by Bin Ning

The Office of Institutional Research, or OIR, recently launched an Interactive Factbook on its website. Users across the university and the public can view summary student data in areas of enrollment, credit hours, degrees awarded, and retention and graduation statistics. The tool also provides trend information over multiple years. The tool significantly helps:

  • Improve user experience and data accessibility.
  • Enhance transparency of university operations. 
  • Cultivate a data-driven decision-making culture. 
  • Increase consistency of data-based information across the university.

Staff at the office will continue to enhance and improve the Interactive Factbook, including adding more student-related information as appropriate and information in other areas. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Bin Ning, associate provost of institutional research, at bning@k-state.edu.

The Office of Institutional Research was formally established in October 2019 by combining the former Offices of Planning and Analysis and Assessment. Currently, the Office of Institutional Research is comprised of two primary functional teams: Reporting and Analytics and Assessment of Student Learning.
