Data and Project Requests
The Registrar's Office supports the reporting needs of the Arts and Sciences Division, which includes the Dean of Faculty and Dartmouth academic Departments/Programs. These areas may email firstname.lastname@example.org
with data/report requests. We do not provide data/reports to students or alumni; please see the Office of Institutional Research website (http://www.dartmouth.edu/~oir)
for public information about Dartmouth College, contact the Dean of Students Office, or contact the Alumni Office for additional services.
The Registrar's Office does not provide research services. Therefore if we determine that a data/report request is complex, it will be considered a "project" subject to review, approval and prioritization. It may involve not only resource/time assessment by our office, but review by the INB, by senior officials and possibly faculty committees, and may require the expertise of the Office of Institutional Research and/or others. This includes requests that seek data sets as well as those requiring analysis. The Registrar's Office is engaged in the implementation of a student data warehouse which is the current reporting project priority.
The Registrar's Office initiates and participates in multiple projects each year, and provides functional technical leadership as well as consultation. We are pleased that so many requests for our services come to us and that the Dartmouth community has confidence in our expertise. This, however, has resulted in more requests for projects than we are able to immediately deliver to those who inquire. We are, of course, constrained by resource availability and remain committed to not only delivering high quality project outcomes but continuous high quality Registrarial service throughout the year to our students and Faculty.
We thus have to prioritize all projects, both small and large. This includes research requests which are categorized as projects. While multiple factors influence project timelines and selection, we do so with the following considerations and based on the prioritization factors described. If you have a project or request that requires our resources that you wish to submit to the Registrar's Office, please email email@example.com and we will provide you with further information about process.
Factors that influence project priority:
- System is "at risk" or with old technologies supporting it thereby putting the College at risk
- Federal compliance issues
- Selection as a Divisional priority by the Dean of the Faculty
- Expertise and specific resource availability in the Registrar's Office as well as Computing Services and/or Institutional Research
- Faculty and student demand, including new faculty legislation
- Selection as an institutional priority by the Student System Oversight Committee
