Description - Campus Factbooks - Keeping Pace with New Nal Needs and Challenges (Issue 91: New Directions for Institutional Research-Ir) by IR

Campus fact books have become an integral part of the institutional research effort at many colleges and universities. In many respects, the development of the fact book has paralleled the development of institutional research; so too may the future of the fact book reflect the future of institutional research. As institutional research and researchers have become more sophisticated, so have institutional fact books. To some observers, however, among them the chapter authors of this volume, there is a concern that over time the changes made in fact books have been more cosmetic than substantive. The expressed purpose of this volume is to explore ways in which the campus fact book can remain and grow as a significant institutional research report, both in light of new reporting demands and opportunities and in response to new and increased demands and uses for institutional data and information from and by internal and external constituencies. The assumption is that the fact book can and perhaps should be an institution's most valuable publication. This is the 91st issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Institutional Research.
