What is IRPA?

Institutional Research, Planning & Assessment (IRPA) supports the work of University leadership by providing information and services that enhance decision-making and strategic planning to advance Boston College's mission of Ever to Excel.  IRPA contributes to planning and assessment at the program, department and school levels through a variety of services:

  • Consultation, coordination and support to departments undergoing program review or strategic planning activities.
  • Service as an information clearinghouse of official statistics and evaluative data about BC and its constituents.
  • Oversight of all aspects of space planning at BC, such as space renovations and programs for major new construction projects.
