Administrative Relocation of Institutional Research to Academic Planning

Dear colleagues,

Chancellor Gillman has approved the administrative relocation of the Office of Institutional Research (OIR) from the Division of Finance and Administration to the Office of Academic Planning in the Office of the Provost, effective July 1, 2020.

Led by Assistant Vice Chancellor Ryan Cherland, OIR performs research, analysis and reporting that supports campus academic planning, strategic decision-making, enrollment management, and program assessment. This move will provide stronger alignment between the capabilities of OIR and the campus need for data and analysis to support broad academic and administrative planning decisions.

Please join me in thanking Ryan and his dedicated team for their continued efforts to advance UCI’s academic mission through high-quality data stewardship and analyses.

Sincerely,

Hal S. Stern, Ph.D.
Interim Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor
Chancellor’s Professor, Department of Statistics
