Consistent with Murray State University's mission of continuous improvement, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness provides information and expertise to assist academic and nonacademic units in measuring and improving student learning and operational outcomes, supports accreditation efforts, and coordinates the review, compilation, and storage of assessment plans and reports.
Please budget time for our office staff to fill your data request. Smaller or standard data request usually take about two weeks to fulfill. If you have a large or complicated data request, or need data during a particularly busy time of year, it may take longer to complete your request.
Official student enrollment information is available late in the semester, usually by the following times of year:
Fall enrollment — available by mid to late November
Spring enrollment — available by mid to late April
Summer enrollment — available by late August
We use an annual census data to record employee (faculty and staff) information. Official counts of employees, along with demographic and job information (job categories, tenure status, faculty rank, etc.) are usually available by the end of February.
Financial Aid Information
Official financial aid information is not available until the financial aid year has ended and all aid has been dispersed. Financial aid information, for the previous academic year, is usually available by late November.

Institutional Effectiveness is working to implement our new assessment software Strategic Planning Online (SPOL). More information will be provided in the near future. If you have any additional questions, please contact Pitzel Krotova at 270.809.3338.
