Welcome to the July 2017 edition of The Institutional Researcher.
As discussed by Kathie, the new and shiny AAIR website has been launched this month and includes an experts database, a compilation of AAIR resources, a comprehensive blog area profiling our institutional researchers, news from the president and relevant posts – and the usual membership details, jobs board and events summary. Make sure you test drive it yourself at http://aair.org.au/.
AAIR Committee member Stuart Terry attended the American Association for Institutional Research (AIR) 2017 Forum in Washington DC (29 May – 2 June). The Forum was attended by over 2,100 participants from diverse higher education institutions across the USA, Canada, South and Central America, the Middle East, Europe, Asia and New Zealand. A full report on the event, plus his review can be found on the new AAIR website at http://aair.org.au/events/2017/07/stuart-terry-air-forum-2017/. As well, we’ve included his summary of the professional development program, ‘A Holistic Approach to Institutional Research’ on page 11.
Finally, Kevin Maley, General Manager for Information and Planning at Bond University, provides some valuable perspectives into the role of the Institutional Researcher (page 12).
