The Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) is proud to serve Antioch University in its commitment to provide “learner-centered education to empower students with the knowledge and skills to lead meaningful lives and to advance social, economic, and environmental justice.”
The OIE will provide data, analysis and research to support planning, decision-making, policy formulation, marketing, accreditation and assessment at the academic and administrative departments of Antioch University.
The goal of the OIE is to provide high quality data, analysis and research in a timely manner, in formats and visualizations understandable by the intended audience. The OIE is responsible for providing official university statistics to satisfy both internal and external reporting needs.
How are research and assessment similar?
Each is a question-driven process of investigation that includes collecting quantitative or qualitative data, analyzing those data, and interpreting the results.
How do research and assessment differ?
The purpose of research is to increase understanding of a topic or issue or to produce new knowledge.
The purpose of assessment is to create evidence to describe the effectiveness of an activity, function, program, office, department, division, or institution.
How does OIE differ from the Registrar’s Office?

How OIE can help with external surveys
For the interest of data integrity, here are some general industry guidelines on which External Surveys the OIE should or should not be responsible for:
With the exception of state and federal institutional reporting (IPEDS, etc.), mandated routine reporting specific to an individual area should be conducted by that area. The responsible official in that area should, however, consult with the OIE whenever aggregate information outside of that area (e.g. enrollments) are required for a form. Examples of reporting that should be conducted not by OIE, but by the appropriate office include: athletics reporting, crime reporting (Clery), tax forms, etc. In general, straightforward office-to-agency reports should go through the appropriate office.
