  • Provide resources for the FIT community including the annual Fact Book
  • Design and conduct applied research projects
  • Fulfill ad-hoc data and customized research requests from internal areas including Enrollment Management, Budget and Finance, Human Resources, President’s Office, and Academic Affairs
  • Coordinate institutional and SUNY-system student and employee surveys
  • Analyze and communicate survey results
  • Provide data and analysis to support grant proposals and grant reporting
