National Survey of Institutional Research (2014-2015)
The Association for Institutional Research (AIR) was awarded a $675,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to focus on three key projects addressing institutional research (IR) capacity in the U.S. One key project was a National Survey of Institutional Research (IR). Kristin McKinley served as a peer reviewer and participated in a pilot test of the survey. The survey was administered in 2015 to establish a baseline of IR office capacities. Data on resources, organizational structures, and assigned tasks were collected.
