Data Center

The Data Center has been established by the Office of Institutional Research to house all the information that OIR compiles throughout the year, which includes the following: Quick Facts, University Fact Book, Departmental Fact Book, Student data (Special Reports) and Faculty data (Special Reports). Additionally, there are five years worth of historical data available in the Fact Books and term data in the Special Reports. Any information not already housed in the Data Center would most likely be an ad hoc request. You may contact us at (916) 278-6566 for more information, or email us at oir@csus.edu.
