Data & Trends

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research (IER) is responsible for maintaining, analyzing, and publishing data relating to USCB's students, faculty, staff, and educational programs for use in the conduct of official university business.

Per the USC Policy on Private Requests for University Data, "requests for the generation of new data or reports about the institution from private parties or for private use..., in which either the requesting party is not an employee of the university, or the intended use of data is not in pursuit of the conduct of official university business" should contact USCB's Advancement Office at 843.208.8030.

USCB Data Request Form
If you have an urgent data request for a University purpose, please complete the Data Request Form and contact Brian Mallory (ext. 4137) or Kevin Bessent (ext. 4178) to discuss.

To insure privacy of student data, The Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research is now placing data in a shared space that only you and we can access. Once the Data Request Form is completed, an IER staff member will contact you with procedures on how to access the requested data.
