Research Analytics Summit 2024

Document Type



At our organizations, policies are often implemented then never reviewed again. We often don’t know why the policy existed in the first place. In this session, we will discuss how the data we already collect can be used to evaluate existing policies, proposed policies, and potential changes. We will walk through an example of how a proposed institutional policy was examined through the use of data on research proposals and awards, and answer the question “Do we really need this policy?” Bring your examples to talk through options for policy evaluation!
