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.
The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report.
The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is a system of surveys designed to collect data from all primary providers of postsecondary education. The IPEDS system is built around a series of interrelated surveys to collect institution-level data in such areas as enrollments, program completions, faculty, staff, and finances.
IRP is responsible for the coordination of preparing and submitting institutional data to UW System. System-wide data reports are available from the Office of Policy Analysis & Research (OPAR).
HEOA includes many disclosure and reporting requirements. In order to increase transparency, UW-W is required to make certain information available to students and all other interested parties. The applicable data is available at the webpage Your Right To Know.
