Drake University's Office of Institutional Research & Assessment (OIRA) provides the University with information to support planning and decision making, provides institutional data to state and federal agencies, and responds to data requests from media and other organizations.

OIRA collects, analyzes, and communicates information in a meaningful way to University administration and the campus community to support planning and decision making at Drake.

OIRA staff also partners with colleges, programs and departments on campus to support effective assessment of student learning outcomes for improvement.

OIRA provides assistance in assessment and evaluation design and implementation (e.g., methodology, survey and focus group tools, data analysis).
