Pushing growth and development forward

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness provides for the continued growth and development of a mission-led, data-informed culture where meaningful accessible information enables leaders at every level to plan proactively and pivot creatively to achieve our ministry goals, both strategic and operational.

Our core pursuit is to collect, analyze, and disseminate data about the University to facilitate planning, policy formation, and decision-making at the department, program, school, and University levels. We support institutional enrollment management, assessment, program review, accreditation, and academic planning by collecting, integrating, analyzing, and reporting varied institutional data and information.

Institutional Research

Our By the Numbers site is designed to give an in depth look at Concordia via University statistics compiled by the Department of Institutional Research. Included are reports and resources related to enrollment and student success as well as survey results and other IR-related resources for benchmarking and comparisons.


Concordia’s assessment of student learning centers on six Global Learning Outcomes connected to the mission and values of the University. Faculty conduct annual program level assessment on all undergraduate majors, graduate, and post-baccalaureate programs. Student learning evidence is used to inform improvements in curriculum, pedagogy, instructional resources, and student services.
