Institutional Data

Page Content

The Office of Institutional Research collects, archives, and maintains institutional data for the purpose of analyzing, distributing and presenting summary information. There are three ways campus community members can acquire data to assist in accreditation, grant writing, etc.  Any faculty and staff member has access to some institutional data through our internal portal, which you will use your SOAR credentials to access.  There is additional data that may be accessed through HelioCampus, which is the university's data analytic platform.  Finally, any data that is not available through the internal portal or HelioCampus, can be requested through our additional data information request form. 


Data requests for research purposes are subject to a fee.  More information on our data request policy can be found here.

*** Note: HelioCampus access is limited due to the amount of licenses.  Licenses are provided to School Directors and 1 designee per School, College Deans' Offices, and University Administration.
