Institutional research transforms university data into knowledge. We serve the University’s mission by analyzing institutional data essential for strategic planning, decision making and policy development. We are additionally responsible for federal and state compliance reports as well as official university reporting necessary for accreditation and assessment. This website contains information on enrollment, retention, graduation rates, employee and student demographics, and institutional finances, among other topics. If you cannot find what you need here, please contact us!

To access Tableau dashboards, log into your Goldlink account using your Missouri Western credentials, then search Institutional Data. These dashboards are not to be used for official reporting. Please contact us directly at for accreditation, state, or federal reporting needs.
