The Common Dataset provides an overview of WOU’s enrollment, retention, admissions, academic offerings, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, faculty, and degrees awarded. Institutional Research uses the dataset to respond to U.S. News and World Report, College Board, and Peterson’s.
In 2018 Hanover Research performed in-depth data analyses on our new applicants and enrolled students, looking for trends to assist WOU in making informed decisions moving forward. These reports are only available for faculty and staff to view.
Each year, once data has been submitted to IPEDS, Western Oregon University is compared to other institutions around the country of a similar size. The reports below illustrate these comparisons by using charts and graphs. Additionally, two custom reports compare Western with the other public Oregon universities.
*Please note, beginning with the 2012-2013 IPEDS reporting period, all institutions must use the July 1 – June 30 reporting period. There is no longer the option of using the September 1 – August 31 reporting period.
