Who We Are
The Office of Assessment and Decision Support (OADS) provides leadership and coordination in data collection and analysis, institutional research and assessment in support of University planning, the continuous improvement of educational programs, and the achievement of University mission, goals, and objectives.
OADS has a significant consultative role on campus. It helps administrators, faculty and staff make effective use of data in management and decision-making by working closely with other departments and offices to provide data and answers to questions from campus constituents. It collaborates to help develop new products such as dashboards and reports and contributes to the design of data marts, data warehouses, and other repositories.
OADS administers surveys of students, staff, and alumni in support of institutional effectiveness and assessment. It compiles data for compliance with Middle States, the Federal Government, and the District of Columbia, and responds to requests for institutional data from external entities such as guidebook publishers, specialized accreditors, and peer institutions.
Looking for Institutional Research (OPIR) Reports?
This site is the new home to data and reports that were previously available via the OPIR Reports site. Data and reports on such things as admissions, enrollment, faculty and staff, and such may be found under Facts and Figures. If you are looking for results of surveys (students, alumni, and staff), these are found under Survey Research. If you are having trouble logging in with your NetID, please contact Jason Casey by email or at 7-7717.
The OADS site is an online data resource provided by the Office of Assessment and Decision Support to aid in the management and self-study of academic departments and other organizational units at Georgetown.
Any password-protected data from the OADS site should be treated confidentially at all times. This means that data should not be published or shared with students at Georgetown, or with organizations or individuals outside of Georgetown, nor should they be used in a manner that is inconsistent with the management and educational goals of the University. Data from COFHE studies should never be published or shared with others.
