Data Request


At Baylor, we are committed to fostering a culture of data-driven decision-making and continuous improvement. The mission of the Institutional Research Data Request Service is to empower stakeholders with timely and relevant data to enhance institutional effectiveness and facilitate informed decision making. Whether you are a faculty member seeking information for program assessment, an administrator planning resource allocation, or a researcher investigating trends in higher education, our team is here to assist you in obtaining the data you need.

How it Works

If you are unable to locate the data you need on other BCM webpages, please submit the short online data request form below:

Data Request

By submitting a data request, you initiate a collaborative process with our IR team. We review your request, clarify any specifics if needed by email or phone calls, and work diligently to provide you with precise and comprehensive data. Our goal is to fulfill your request within 5 business days. However, the timeline for completion may vary based on the complexity of your request and the existing volume of pending requests. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work to provide you with accurate and comprehensive data.

All requests will adhere to guidelines set forth by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). 

If you are requesting data for a publication or grant, you must provide an IRB approval number before we can complete your request. For external requests, if you are requesting student or faculty-level information, you must submit a written request to the Office of the General Counsel.
