Office of Institutional Research

Welcome to the Office of Institutional Research (OIR) at Wellesley College.

We are transitioning our office’s mission and structure to better serve integrated institutional planning and decision-making by reframing to serve Wellesley College as the Office of Institutional Planning and Assessment.

Our office will provide the College’s academic and administrative leadership with data and analysis to inform institutional planning and decision-making, will serve as our primary liaison to external organizations and accrediting agencies, and will coordinate Wellesley’s assessment efforts.

We strive to encourage a participatory process of institutional planning and assessment, by working with faculty and staff and other constituencies to identify important and urgent research questions, conduct high-level analysis of pertinent data, and communicate research findings and actionable recommendations.
