Institutional Research and Surveys

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness provides support to administrators, faculty, staff and students at the institution by collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and disseminating data and information.  In doing so, the office facilitates and informs institutional planning and decision making.  While much of our research is derived from surveys, we also conduct analyses on institutional data, especially data regarding student retention.

The following resources are available for the SNC campus (log-in required).

Annual Surveys

Annual Surveys of Students At-A-Glance

  • A table containing information about each of the surveys we administer annually to our students, with links to the most recent version of the survey and to reports and data visualizations of the findings (Note: you may need to re-size or scroll to view the entire table)

Retention Data

The vast majority of students who are admitted to the college complete their degree here, but some do not. Who stays, who leaves, and why?  

  • Retention Research and Reports (2000-2012)
    • An archive of major retention reports and summaries, and of retention studies conducted by our office, organized by topic.
  • Retention Research and Reports (2013-present)
    • More recent research on retention, including variables differentiating students who re-enroll and those who leave the institution; analyses of Exit Survey data; and retention rates by student demographic variables (Equity Scorecards)
  • SNC Historical Retention (last 5 years)
    • Aggregated retention data, including a number of variables such as gender, average GPA, ACT, average loan, unmet need, dismissed students, and average credits earned.  SNC log-in required.

IPEDS

The annual IPEDS Data Feedback Report provides a graphic overview of statistics for St. Norbert College compared to a group of similar institutions. The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) collects data from higher education institutions that are eligible to receive Title IV funding.  These data are then used at federal and state levels for policy analysis and development, and at the institutional level for benchmarking and peer analysis.  The peer institutions in SNC's comparison group are listed on page 2 of these documents. Additional information about IPEDS can be found at https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds
