Institutional Research

The Office of the Registrar is responsible for the role of institutional research (IR).   IR supports the planning and decision making process of the Administrative Council and other senior officials by providing accurate and objective information in statistically measuring the success of the institutional strategic plan and other seminary initiatives.  This includes (but is not limited to):

  • Analysis of enrollment activities and trends, enrollment projections, and analysis of student population
  • Development and maintenance of systems and reports for monitoring and evaluating student performance and success (retention tracking, graduation rates, and time to degree)
  • Serve as a reliable source for comprehensive and authoritative information about the seminary by producing a series of regular reports designed to support the recurring decision needs of the institution


Below is a list of commonly requested reports that comprise the seminary's Fall 2013 Data Book; data books for prior years are available upon request.  Should an office or external constituent require data that is not listed below, a Data Request Form must be submitted through the Office of the Registrar web site.
