Office of Institutional Research

Institutional research is the applied study of higher education. Our goal is to provide information about Hampshire College to support decision-making, enrollment management, institutional planning, and program reviews; and to place Hampshire in the broader context of liberal arts education.

Some of the activities for which we are responsible are:

  • analyzing enrollment and retention patterns
  • assessing student learning outcomes
  • surveying research¬†about students and faculty
  • tracking data from similar institutions for benchmarking purposes
  • reporting institutional data to external agencies

More details about what the IR office does can be found in our annual reports.
