About the Endicott Research Center - What we do

The Endicott Research Center conducts research and evaluation designed to inform educational policy and leaders at the state, national, and international levels using a variety of instruments. The Office of Institutional Research, as part of the Endicott Research Center, provides statistics and information to support the College in meeting its mission.

Recent accreditation research includes work for the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the Council of International Schools.

Our evaluation instruments are used all over the world and are currently available in 22 languages; our surveys are seen by hundreds of thousands of students, parents, and teachers.

The Endicott Research Center is the liaison to the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, overseeing College-wide accreditation, strategic planning, mission, assessment, compliance and regulations.
