Administrative history

As early as 1966, the General Faculties Council at the University of Alberta had decided that an Office of Institutional Research would be created. The Office of Institutional Research and Planning (IRP) was formed in 1969 through the amalgamation of several offices. Its mandate was specified by the General Faculties Council as indcluding the systematic study of the University's structure, operation, goals, and relation to the community and other similar insititutions. Its appearance was part of a North American development of such offices at many universities in teh 1960s and 1970s. Their role usually includes performing tow major functions; 1. providing data which are useful to senior administrators in decision making, and 2. conducting independent, scholarly research.
