Institutional Research and Academic Planning

We provide evidence-based analyses and reports that inform and shape strategic planning, institutional policy creation and revision, and decision support.

UC is a leader in advocating for the purpose and importance of public higher education. By providing timely, accurate, consistent, and reliable information about UC and the environment in which it operates, Institutional Research and Academic Planning (IRAP) illustrates UC’s progress, challenges and outcomes in support of its mission.

IRAP's statement of inclusion: We create and model an inclusive and collaborative culture for all of us to belong, grow, and feel valued. We thrive together and commit to practice transparency and equity.
