Higher Education Consulting

At the Institute for Effectiveness in Higher Education, we understand that sometimes what institutions and departments need most is some extra helping hands to meet deadlines, support large-scale accountability activities, and/or fill the knowledge and production gaps left by employee turnover. The IEHE supports institutions and individuals when these situations arise by working with them to pinpoint where and what type support is needed and develop a plan for meeting objectives.

Accreditation Preparation

Collecting and analyzing data for regional and program accreditation self-studies and on-site reviews is a huge undertaking. IEHE supports institutions with service offerings like document review and suggested revisions, mock-interviews and on-site visit simulations, and review of data throughout the report for consistency.

IPEDS reporting is a big undertaking. Maybe you’re concerned about meeting approaching deadlines. Or maybe you’re wondering if there’s a way to improve the process. IEHE works with institutions to get IPEDS reports completed on time and offers thorough reviews of IPEDS reports and supporting documents. We’ll provide feedback on processes and documentation, as well as recommendations for efficiency, effectiveness, and opportunities for more complete reporting.

Sometimes you really need an extra pair of hands. IEHE offers Institutional Research Bridge & Temporary Services for when you need experienced, hands-on IR support. We support critical reports and projects until your institution identifies a permanent employee, an employee returns, or the increased demand for IR support has passed (e.g., accreditation visit is complete).

IR & IE Infrastructure Development

Time to make a change? IEHE reviews and recommends infrastructure updates that enhance institutional research & effectiveness activities. We’ll help with things like IR departmental design, data and assessment scheduling, and processes for meeting internal needs and external compliance.
