The Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness compiles, tracks, and reports official statistics and general data about Loyola University New Orleans.
For all data requests, complete the data request form. Include as much information as possible. Types of data requests could include faculty/staff profiles, student headcounts, departmental retention indicators, descriptions of course offerings, aggregated results of relevant student survey tools, or other data as appropriate.
Basic information about Loyola University New Orleans is available in the Common Data Sets. The Common Data Set (CDS) is a collaborative effort between data providers within the higher education community and publishers of undergraduate admissions data such as US News, College Board, Peterson’s, ACT, etc.
Key performance indicators (KPIs) are used by campus stakeholders (e.g., colleges, committees, offices, departments, etc.) to assist the university in measuring progress toward strategic and organizational goals.
The Program Support Pages (PSP) are reported as a convenience for on-campus planners using a specific set of definitions within a specific theoretical model. The pages do not speak to program quality, nor do they, necessarily, address directly the question of resources. The data are useful for reviewing trends over an extended period of time.
Student Course Credit Hour Reports detail the total number of hours generated by students in their major, by college and by department.
