Description of the Collection:

Various surveys and studies conducted by Planning and Analytical Studies (formerly Institutional Research). A wide variety of topics are covered, but the bulk falls under the following subject areas: faculty and faculty salaries, students, enrollment, curricula, follow-up studies of graduates, campus space utilization, and graduate studies. Largely consisting of statistics and tables with accompanying analysis, there are also occasional descriptive works such as current faculty research and a bibliography of faculty publications. Interesting studies include a 1966 look at university contributions to the local Marquette economy, a 1972-1973 Campus Ministry survey, and various campus environment analyses.
