Looking for University data? This team has you covered.

As the central source for student data and University statistics, the Office of Institutional Research and Strategic Analytics was restructured to optimally support the needs of faculty, staff, and students who use data to propel their research, decision-making, and knowledge about the University of Miami.

Did you know that as of the 2018–19 academic year, the University of Miami Libraries are home to over 1,183,283 electronic books? How about the fact that there are 141 buildings on the Coral Gables campus? Or that research and sponsored program expenditures totaled $345.8 million in FY 2018? There’s a lot to learn about life at the University of Miami, and the Office of Institutional Research and Strategic Analytics (IRSA) is prepared to support all of your data needs. 

When it comes to getting the facts straight, IRSA—formally the Office of Planning, Institutional Research, and Assessment (PIRA)—is the go-to resource for the University community. As the central source for student data, University statistics, and strategic reporting, IRSA remains at the forefront of providing internal and external reporting to faculty, staff, and students. 

In addition to producing the University’s annual Fact Book, IRSA supports data requests from across the University and provides official University statistics to support decision-making and policy developments and improvements. 

As part of a recent reorganization their team has also improved the ways in which the University community can request data. All data requests can now be submitted through the IRSA data request form. For any other inquiries you can contact them via email at umdata@miami.edu.
