The Office of Institutional Research, which is housed in the Registrar’s Office, provides management information and analytical support to College decision makers. The Office serves as a major repository for information on enrollment, degrees awarded, and is charged with analyzing and interpreting these data for use in planning and policy decisions. It has a major role in providing statistical data to the President, Deans, and Board of Directors for strategic planning, accreditation review, and student outcomes. The Office of Institutional Research also has a major responsibility for compiling and filing reports required by the Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board, the U.S. Department of Education, HEDS and other state and federal agencies.
An equally important role of the Office of Institutional Research is to supply educators and administrators with information about today’s college student. One way we collect information is through the administration of surveys. We also create databases which help us assess student progress at Whitman College. We disseminate these reports to various departments on campus to assist them in their decision making process. In the near future, we hope to make many of these reports available to the public as we add them to our web site.
An enrollment report for the current semester is available here. This information includes statistics on the number of full time students versus part time students, a breakdown of the diversity on the Whitman Campus, and more. More information is available in the College Factbook. Please take a look at it!
Preface: The Whitman College Factbook is designed to provide Whitman College administrators and faculty with accurate and consistent information about Whitman’s student, faculty, staff, and financial characteristics. This demographic information is designed to assist those who need accurate and consistent numbers for policy making, fund raising, grant writing, etc. At present, the enrollment data for 5 years are included so significant trends can be identified.
