The Director of Institutional Research is responsible for collecting, analyzing, evaluating, warehousing, and reporting official data about the institution.

A major portion of his responsibility is the assessment of student learning and institutional effectiveness to inform decisions made by College policymakers. He also provides information about the campus to the general public through a variety of external surveys, including U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review. In addition, all governmental reporting of student, faculty, and staff data is handled through the Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment.

The Director is also responsible for all college-wide surveys on student, faculty, and staff experience with Bryn Mawr. These surveys include CIRP, NSSE, and a variety of COFHE sponsored surveys. He also supports faculty assessment projects and is the Principal Investigator for the Tri-Co Teagle Project.
