Memorandum to a Newcomer

As part of AIR’s 50th anniversary celebration, historic documents including papers, books, and manuscripts are being added to the AIR History page throughout this year. One such document is Memorandum to a Newcomer to the Field of Institutional Research by John M. Lyons. We invite you to review the introduction to this paper and compare the definition of the term “Institutional Research” as discussed in 1976 with the current landscape of the field today.
