November 14-15, 2018

The Illinois Association for Institutional Research promotes institutional research in post-secondary education as a professional activity; disseminates information about the methods and content of institutional research; provides a forum in which institutional researchers can discuss and seek assistance in their common problems and share research findings; and promotes professional development of I-AIR members.

The 48th Annual Forum will be held at the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham in Champaign, IL.
