The Office of Institutional Research, Planning & Assessment (IRPA) is the central administrative unit for gathering and reporting data at St. Kate's. A primary function of this office is to share data that support the college's effectiveness, policy-making, planning, and decision-making. Access to collected data is available to the entire campus community upon request. IRPA staff routinely write reports on major institutional research and provides them at this site. Faculty and Staff interested in building their own research, evaluation and assessment practice are invited to participate in workshops, training events, and brown bags routinely announced here and in the St. Catherine University Daily Update.
IRPA staff believe in EDD (evidence drives decisions). Let us help you with your research planning and practice.
