Institutional Research has been collecting snapshot data files of each semester's enrolled students and each fall's entering freshmen since fall 1990. The files are used to generate information requested by the Enrollment Management Committee, the Retention Committee, and the Assessment and Outcomes (A&O) Committee, including retention and graduation rates and scholastic indicators of entering freshmen. Institutional Research has developed tables tracking the high school background and college persistence patterns of freshmen cohorts; tables to track their progress through classes and majors are being developed. The Registrar and Director of Institutional Research are developing tables to track transfer students. The A&O Committee will examine enrollment and retention patterns at the University and make recommendations as appropriate.
