Under the direction of the Instructional Research and Information leadership team, senior research analysts conduct research to assist the planning, measurement, and evaluation of the mission and goals of UVU and its communities. A senior research analyst participates in conception and articulation of research problems, development and realization of methodology designed to inform those problems, the analysis of data, and finally, the identification and communication of findings relevant to those problems.
Institutional Research and Information is organized into two teams: (1) Assessment Support, Analysis, and Survey Research; and (2) Data Management, Analysis, and Reporting. Although general skillsets needed for each role are similar, specific skills may be emphasized depending on the vacancy being filled.
Essential Functions, Major Duties, and/or Accountabilities:
-Manage and maintain quality of institutional databases. Extract, analyze, visualize, and describe institutional data. This data is used both internally for operational and strategic decision making and externally for informational and official institutional reporting to state and federal agencies, accreditation, program review, and other programs such as IPEDS, Perkins, VSA, and Student-Right-to-Know.
-Conduct data collection efforts involving UVU constituencies, including the development, administration, and analysis of paper, telephone, and web surveys, focus groups, etc. These efforts include standardized, nationally-normed surveys, such as the NSSE, as well as custom surveys of students (alumni, non-completers, prospective students, etc.), employees, local employers, and the community-at-large. A research analyst facilitates the utilization of these data through both written and verbal communication. This includes presentations, executive summaries/briefs, data visualizations, reports, etc.
-Collaborate with administrators and leaders regarding institutional reporting, business intelligence, strategic planning, assessment, and data-informed decision-making. This collaboration may take the form of informal meetings and communication or participation in more formal task forces and committee assignments.
-Participate in professional associations and other development opportunities to (1) keep abreast of best practices and trends in the area of institutional research, and (2) to contribute to the field more broadly.
-Work closely and in collaboration with other IRI staff and internal and external clients to design and implement studies and reports to meet the growing and diverse needs of the University and its administrative units.
-Other duties as required.
