Institutional Research and Analysis

Mission Statement

The mission of the Institutional Research and Analysis office is to collect and analyze internal and external data and to provide accurate, timely, value-added information to Saskatchewan Polytechnic management and staff for use in program planning, decision-making, performance measurement and public accountability activities.

Institutional Research and Analysis is the official releaser of all Saskatchewan Polytechnic student and program statistics. 


The primary functions of the Institutional Research and Analysis office include:

  • undertake and report on a series of annual institutional surveys related to key Saskatchewan Polytechnic performance indicators (e.g., Graduate Employment Survey, Student Satisfaction Survey and Employer Survey)
  • participate in the development, implementation and maintenance of an Enterprise Data Warehouse to be used for institutional reporting of student and program statistics
  • generate a set of official standardized reports related to student demographics and activity based on Saskatchewan Polytechnic census reporting dates (including student statistics for Saskatchewan Polytechnic's annual report)
  • collect, analyze and release student and program statistics in response to ad hoc requests for information from Saskatchewan Polytechnic's management and staff (internal requests for information), Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Freedom of Information office (external requests for information) and reports to the government
  • support Saskatchewan Polytechnic performance measurement reporting activities related to Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs
  • upon request of senior academic management, provide methodological assistance to internal staff conducting research about Saskatchewan Polytechnic's students or programs
