Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Academic Assessment  

The Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Academic Assessment (OIRPAA) at Mills College supports the College's planning and decision making efforts so that the College can fulfill its larger mission. There are two main areas of responsibility within OIRPAA: institutional research, which encompasses the collection and dissemination of data to support the College in its planning, enrollment management, daily operations, and accountability compliance; and assessment, which provides a framework and oversight for the College’s program of student learning assessment both to improve student learning at all levels, and to establish the evidence of educational effectiveness required for accreditation. The Office responds to requests from constituencies of the College in order to support decision-making, assessment, policy, analysis, effective management, projections, and planning. It also responds to requests for information from outside agencies and other institutions and generates annual reports showing trends and comparisons with peer institutions. The goals of OIRPAA are to ensure that reports and analyses are accurate, timely, and useful. To this end, OIRPAA works with data custodians to ensure that benchmark files dealing with student, curricular, financial, and personnel data are as accurate and consistent as possible. OIRPAA staff consists of a Director, an Assistant Director of Insitutional Research, and a student worker.
