  • Welcome to OIRSA
    Lehigh's home for institutional data and data-related resources
  • Data analysis and decision support for the greater Lehigh community
    OIRSA provides institutional data and analysis to Lehigh stakeholders for strategic and operational planning purposes.
The Office of Institutional Research and Strategic Analytics (OIRSA) is the source of comprehensive information regarding Lehigh University. Part of the Provost’s stem, we pride ourselves on collecting and disseminating reliable and valid institutional data in a responsive, timely and ethical manner.
What We Do

OIRSA responds to requests for institutional data that come from appropriate parties both internal and external to the University. In addition to being responsible for Lehigh’s course evaluation program, OIRSA also initiates studies that will be helpful for institutional planning, policy formation, and decision‐making.

Who We Serve

OIRSA serves an array of internal and external Lehigh University audiences, ranging from university leadership including the President, Provost and Board of Trustees, to prospective students and their families, government agencies and the media. Most requests for Lehigh-related data, whether from inside or outside the University, are processed by OIRSA.
