Compliance & Reporting

IRP is responsible for completing many external reports and surveys, including federal and state reporting obligations, UW System reporting requirements, and guidebook/ranking surveys that ensure accurate information about the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater is disseminated nationally to prospective students and their families.

Because they represent reporting requirements, best practices, and/or contribute to UW-W’s national reputation, these activities take precedence over other reports and related data requests.
