The National Survey of IR Offices report (page 7) grouped IR offices into three “personalities:” Broad (offices with broad portfolios of work for which they are responsible, 27% of offices), Focused (offices with a concrete set of tasks with a significant set of tasks for which they have no responsibility, 45% of offices), and Limited Responsibility (offices whose responsibility is largely centered on reporting tasks, 28% of offices).

Disaggregating by sector, we find that Public institutions (2-year and 4-year) have similar ratios of Broad, Focused, and Limited Responsibility while a lower percentage of Private, not-for-profit, 4-year institutions are in the “Broad” category compared to public institutions.
