Institutional Research

Institutional research serves campus decision-making and planning in areas such as student retention, financial aid, enrollment management, employment reporting, and much more.

BSC's institutional research department collects, analyzes, reports, and warehouses quantitative and qualitative data. Importantly, the department is involved in collecting and reporting information to government agencies [e.g., the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS)], various surveys (e.g., U.S. News & World Report), and more.

Below are several important reports generated by the institutional research department. For more information, please contact Ellie Shockley via email elizabeth.shockley@bismarckstate.edu or phone 701-224-2425
