The Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Accreditation (IRPA) collects, analyzes, and shares data that informs decision-making, planning, and effectiveness at St. Catherine University. IRPA researchers collect, analyze, and report quantitative and qualitative data about St. Kate's students, faculty, staff, curriculum, course offerings, and learning outcomes. IRPA is the source of much of the information we provide to regional and national accreditation bodies to document how we fulfill the standards for accreditation.
In addition to reporting, IRPA researchers engage in data analysis; ranging from simply testing whether differences in reported data are statistically significant, to developing predictive statistical models to support assessment and strategic enrollment management. We believe evidence drives decisions. Let us help you with your research, planning, and practice.
