OIE Internal Priorities

In order to provide high-quality data and information for our stakeholders—and meet the University’s most critical needs on a timely basis—the Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) prioritizes incoming data and research requests as follows:

  • Graduate student thesis or dissertation
  • External marketing requests
  • Unidentifiable and unsolicited requests
  • Unverifiable requests submitted by phone or email
  • External surveys
  • Internal surveys
  • Departmental requests
  • Faculty requests
  • Media requests
  • Government-mandated submissions
  • Compliance (bond and regulatory)
  • Accreditation agency compliance
  • Internal and external audits
  • Loyola upper administration
  • Advancement
  • Enrollment management
  • University marketing
  • Finance
  • Grant proposals
  • College and university rankings

Please note that the priority levels listed above should be regarded as general guidelines only. A Priority 2 request may be granted a higher status if the project is an institutional priority. A Priority 3 request, on the other hand, may be rejected if access to the requested data is restricted by the University‚Äôs guidelines for the distribution of proprietary information. Requests will not be processed for homework or term project purposes. Assigned priority levels do not necessarily affect response times. We make every effort to fulfill each request in a timely manner, and most requests are fulfilled before their estimated due dates.
