Policy Analysis and Accreditation

Developing contextual analytics and statistics to power UB's senior policy discussion.

Our team within the Office of Institutional Analysis assists in developing contextual information and other analyses for senior leadership at the University at Buffalo.  Project areas include:

  • Survey design, administration, analyses and visualizations
  • Survey reporting (national, state, and system-wide)
  • Institutional and programmatic accreditation documentation, data collection, reporting, and review
  • Policy analysis and decision support using advanced analytics: recent projects include faculty salary comparisons, merit scholarship analysis, enrollment forecasting and prediction, tuition scholarship modeling, critical pathway course analysis, financial aid reporting, tuition comparisons, and retention prediction and analysis.
  • National Student Clearinghouse liaison for the university. We create and submit various student files to provide information about enrollments, degrees, and markets.
