Mission: The Office of Institutional Research supports Smith’s mission by providing analytic information that enables data-driven decision-making.

Through a program of survey research, assessment support, and analytic infrastructure development, we work to provide senior administrators and the campus with consistent, reliable, and accessible information about Smith.

We strive to do this in a way that honors Smith’s identity as a highly selective liberal arts women’s college, that supports and enhances faculty governance, and that enables campus stakeholders’ ability to communicate, track, and measure their success.
