The Office of Institutional Planning, Research and Assessment (OIPRA) Internship Experience was established to encourage applied learning in a higher education administrative setting. An internship experience with OIPRA offers a student the opportunity to engage with the professional Institutional Research practices of Universities. OIPRA interns will have the opportunity to recruit participants, as well as, collect, analyze and report data for the purposes of institutional improvement. Throughout the internship each student will complete a data-driven project based upon a topic of interest related to their field of study.
We would like to welcome Abuchi Obiegbu as the first student intern within the Office of Institutional Planning, Research and Assessment. Abuchi joined the HT family in Fall 2011 as a first-year first-time international student from Kaduna, Nigeria. Mr. Obiegbu is a W.E.B. Dubois Scholar majoring in Computer Science. His spring 2013 internship project includes creating a demographic resource about international students at Huston-Tillotson University.
