Duties and functions reflecting guidance from the Association of Institutional Research (AIR) include the following:

Identify Information Needs
This functional area reflects the iterative process of identifying relevant stakeholders and their decision support needs. It includes anticipating questions through review of data, information, and research and policy studies, including those related to institutional, state, national, and international conversations around higher education.

Collect, Analyze, Interpret and Report Data and Information
This functional area reflects the technical tasks employed by institutional research to provide data, information, and analysis for decision support. It involves an understanding of the data available to answer pressing questions about student access and success and institutional operations and the process by which previously unavailable data are collected. The process of collecting and reporting required and requested data is encompassed in this area. 

Plan and Evaluate
Planning may include operational, budgetary, and strategic planning in which institutional research collaborates with other units at the institution, state, or related organizations. It may also include program review, particularly for accreditation purposes. 

Serve as Stewards of Data and Information
This functional area highlights institutional research’s role in ensuring an institution-wide data strategy. Compliance issues such as privacy and security and ethical issues such as determining what data and information should be used for various purposes, and whether interpretations are correct and appropriately used, are also critical to this area. 

Support Institutional Commitment to Continuous Growth and Improvement
This function acknowledges the significant role of Research, Grants & Assessment in gathering and presenting representative data to inform stakeholders, consumers, accrediting bodies, state reviewers, and other interested parties.  Ensuring that information is clear, accurate, useful and compliant informs continuous quality representation of the Medaille College community, and helps guide decision-making at all levels.
