The Office of Institutional Research
The Office of Institutional Research (OIR) reports to the Provost and exists to advance the understanding, planning, operation, evaluation, and improvement of Farmingdale State College through the dissemination of clear and consistent data, information and analysis.
More specifically, the Office of Institutional Research provides Farmingdale's administrative and academic departments and our external constituencies with data and analysis to support assessment efforts, planning and decision making. The office also serves as the official reporting source for mandated college data to SUNY System Administration, as well as to the State Education Department and federal reporting agencies, such as IPEDS. We also administer campus surveys, including the Student Opinion Survey, the National Survey of Student Engagement, and the Six-Month After Graduation Survey, and respond to requests from internal and external constituencies for information and statistics about the institution.
The mission of the Office of Institutional Research is to support the understanding, planning, operation, and evaluation of Farmingdale State College through the compilation and dissemination of reliable, accurate and timely data, information and analyses to the campus community and its stakeholders.
To achieve its mission, the Office of Institutional Research has established the following goals:
- Provide internal and external College constituents with accurate and relevant data, information and analyses via regular and ad-hoc reporting to support planning, assessment, decision-making and promotion of the College.
- Submit official data files and reports in accordance with SUNY, Middle States, NYSED, and the US Department of Education reporting mandates.
- Provide data and information to College constituents in a timely manner.
- Provide data and information to College constituents in a widely available and easily accessible format.
