Institutional Research Monthly-Friday Fact (IR-MFF)

The Institutional Research Monthly-Friday Fact (IR-MFF) is a monthly publication launched to promote a culture of evidence-based decision making and practice and raise institutional awareness on topics/issues of academic and/or strategic relevance to NU.

The IR-MFF is a 300-word summary of research and analytical projects carried out by NU Institutional Research and Analytics, using survey data and/or institutional records. The IR-MFF is typically published the last Friday of the month (August-November and January-April).

We encourage members of the NU community to reflect on and discuss the monthly issue/topic—at department, school, committee/council, or even classroom levels—and share their perspectives, experiences, and recommendations for practice.
