Institutional Research and Academic Planning

We provide analyses and reports that inform and shape strategic planning, institutional policy, and decision support.

IRAP provides timely, accurate, consistent and reliable information about UC and the environment in which it operates. Through evidence-based analyses, we support and guide enrollment planning, policy creation and revision, program and campus budget reviews, statewide higher education studies and UC operations. We also produce the annual Accountability Report, which assesses UC's activities, achievements and operations through data-driven narratives and visualizations. Read more »
