Welcome to the Office of Institutional Research!

We play a pivotal role on campus by fulfilling two core functions:

  • Provide mandatory data to the Chancellor's Office in a timely fashion, ensuring compliance.
  • Serve as a key resource for Cal Poly constituents, offering crucial data for strategic planning and decision-making, accreditation, surveys, and analytical reports.

Our commitment extends to leveraging powerful visualization tools, transforming admissions, enrollment, degrees, employee, financial aid, and retention/graduation rate data into insightful perspectives to inform decision-making.
