Institutional Research (IR) Resources

Core Institute Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Survey

The Core institute is a small five-person department within the Southern Illinois University Carbondale Student Health Center. Our focus is supporting sound quantitative assessments that inform and direct student life programming efforts for the benefit of students' health and welfare across the nation. To date, we have the largest database on alcohol and other drug use at post-secondary educational institutions.

University of Delaware Cost and Productivity Study

The National Study of Instructional Costs and Productivity, better known as the Delaware Cost Study, is generally acknowledged as the “tool of choice” for comparative analysis of faculty teaching loads, direct instructional cost, and separately budgeted scholarly activity at the level of academic discipline. Since its inception in 1996, over 600 institutions have participated in the Delaware Cost Study.  The Study continues to be used by major data consortia and state agencies such as the Association of American Universities Data Exchange (AAUDE), the Southern Universities Group (SUG), the University of North Carolina (UNC) System, and the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), among others.
