Historical Note:

A Director of Institutional Research for the University of Missouri was first appointed in 1968. This position was initially placed under the administrative control of the UM-System Vice President for Research. In 1969, administrative oversight of the Director of Institutional Research was transferred to the Vice President of Academic Affairs. Before the end of 1969, however, oversight by the Vice President for Academic Affairs was ended and the Office of Institutional Research was created. The Director of this new office reported directly to the University President.
