The Institutional Research Office at Lackawanna College maintains authoritative statistics making it the primary source for College employees who are preparing internal reports or responding to external requests for institutional information.  Gathering student, financial, and institutional information, the office performs careful and detailed analyses in accordance with College’s standard of reporting.  The Institutional Research Office also houses all certified data for the College.

Statistical information mandated for disclosure as a result of the Higher Education Opportunity Act, as well as information in accordance with the Clery Act (Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, a.k.a. Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act) is made available on the Student Consumer Information page of the Lackawanna College website.  Further institutional specific information can be found on our At-a-Glance page and more detailed information may be requested through the Institutional Research Office.

Collection, analysis and warehousing of institutional data is centralized in the Institutional Research Office and utilized for internal and external reporting, internal analysis and assessment.  Working with College staff and collaborating with outside Institutional Research professionals, the Office maintains current design and preparation methodology and meets all publication standards set both internally and externally by governing entities such as Federal and State Departments of Education, Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, Middle states Commission on Higher Education, College Board, Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Pennsylvania, the American Association of University Professors, and others.

The intent behind this reporting and expanded access is to provide the College and its community with an authoritative source for data-driven reporting and informed decision making.
