What's New?

Big Changes Coming to IR Website

Over the coming months, you’ll begin to see many new changes to the NMU Office of Institutional Research website. We recently purchased Tableau software which will give us the ability to bring data to the greater NMU campus through a self-serve model of dashboards and scorecards. This process will take time to implement and content will be prioritized based on need. 

New Data Request Process

If you’d like to submit a request for data to the Institutional Research staff, please do so through our new data request submission form. You will receive a confirmation email that your request has been submitted properly and a staff member from the office will contact you for further details. Putting this process in place allows us to review data requests and develop more streamlined processes freeing up more time for providing services!  Let us know if you have any questions.
