Institutional Research & Assessment

The Office and Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA) provides and coordinates institutional research that helps inform the planning, decision-making, budgeting, assessment and accreditation processes that allow Hood College to fulfill its mission and strategic priorities. OIRA provides reports (Fact Book), survey results (internal and external) and resources for internal use by Hood College faculty and staff.

OIRA Survey Policy coming soon!

The purpose of our policy will be to manage survey requests from the college community and external agencies. It will require that all surveys intended for distribution to any members of the college--student, faculty, staff, and alumni-- must be reviewed and approved by the office. The goals are to prevent survey fatigue among students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Please see below for our 2021-2022 calendar.
