IR Summit

 

 

 

March 9, 2016

FHI 360 Conference Center, Washington, DC

Institutional research was featured on the national stage at the recent IR Summit in Washington, DC. On March 9, 2016, the Association for Institutional Research invited 70 postsecondary leaders from higher education organizations, presidential associations, government agencies, accrediting bodies, philanthropic groups, and others to join voices in promoting the field of IR. Thought leaders gathered to talk about the importance of data in higher education overall, and IR in support of student success specifically. The IR Summit highlighted a future-orientated vision of IR that calls for broader support for all decision makers (including administrators, faculty, staff, and students), and strategic leadership for data and IR in the quest to promote student success. The foundation of this national conversation was the newly released Statement of Aspirational Practice for Institutional Research.
