Who is OIRE?
We are the institutional research unit for the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus and are engaged with internal and external customers to promote data-valued and knowledge-based decision-making regarding our institution, our students and our faculty and staff. Our mission is enhance institutional effectiveness and student success through data-valued decision-making.
What CAN OIRE do for you?
We provide aggregate-level (summarized) reports about student characteristics, success, and activity, including enrollments, graduation, retention, performance, and more. We also report on employee information, like diversity, salary and headcounts. We have access to the information contained in the CIW (Central Information Warehouse), which is fed from both the student and course management system (CU-SIS) and our Human Resources information system (PeopleSoft). We may also perform additional data-gathering for information not contained in those systems, such as faculty tenure information. We can prepare a variety of reports, from simple headcounts to sophisticated statistical analyses and prediction.
Of course, it helps if we know what question(s) we’re trying to help you answer, but if you’re not entirely sure of what you need, don’t worry. We’ve got experience helping people clarify the issues they’re faced with and assisting in the formulation of questions that can be answered in numerical or statistical terms.
What CAN’T OIRE do for you?
Most importantly, no member of OIRE will violate any confidentiality regulations at any time, for any reason. It is our general practice to not release record-level date – that is, we will not report information on any individual, be it student or employee.
Requests for lists of students should be directed to the Registrar’s office.
Requests for lists of employees should be directed to the Human Resources office.
Please be aware that our practice is to not release reports that would allow sensitive information to be deduced. For example, if a given program has fewer than 5 members of a given ethnicity, we may suppress that count so no one is tempted to make guesses about who those individuals might be.
