Welcome to the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment at Cornell College!

What exactly is "institutional research"? Excellent question! Institutional research speaks to the College's efforts to collect, analyze, and use data to guide planning and decision-making. We work with faculty, students, and staff to answer relevant questions about student learning and effective educational practices.

This site is intended to provide a variety of information to both internal and external constituents. Within this site, you'll find Cornell College's statistical profile, public data pertaining to the college, various research reports, information about self-study, assessment resources, and a variety of research / assessment resource links.
