Our office informs decision-making with analytics.

The Office of Institutional Planning and Assessment, formerly known as the Office of Institutional Research, strives to provide the College’s academic and administrative leadership with data and analysis to inform institutional planning and decision-making. We serve as the primary liaison to external organizations and accrediting agencies, and coordinate Wellesley’s assessment efforts.

We seek 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.
