Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.

Institutional Data Center

These pages are a collection of some of North Central's institutional research and reports, which serve as vehicles to promote institutional understanding and improvement. They also play a role in assuring the public of the quality of our institution and higher education as an enterprise. 


Institutional research is a broad category of work done at schools, colleges and universities to inform campus decision-making and planning in areas such as admissions, financial aid, curriculum, enrollment management, staffing, student life, finance, facilities and alumni relations.

Quantitative and qualitative data about North Central's students, faculty, staff, curriculum, course offerings, and learning outcomes is collected, analyzed, reported and warehoused.  Institutional research is the source of much of the information provided to regional and national accreditation bodies to document how institutions fulfill the standards for accreditation.


We thought this information would be informative for not only our internal use, but to our students and those outside of our organization as well.
