"Institutional research (IR) - and the practitioners who undertake it - offers evidence-based support for policy and governance in a volatile world. This timely and topical volume provides detailed insight into how these decision-support systems operate, the challenges they face, and the outcomes achieved in terms of quality improvement of institutions and informed understanding of higher education's contributions to society."
