Nation-wide Assessment of Institutional Research in Chile

In 2016, the Ministerio de Educación de Chile (MINEDUC) retained the services of DPM Research to undertake a nation-wide assessment of institutional research in the Chilean postsecondary education system. This ambitious ten-month project involved undertaking a survey of 75 institutions and site visits to 26 universities, professional institutes and technical training centers across the Chilean territory.

On June 9, 2017, the research team was invited to present the study findings in Santiago, Chile. More than 150 attendees from private and public institutions participated in the seminar that highlighted the diversity observed in IR development, as well as best practices that can be implemented to close the gaps observed across the system.

The results from this important study will also be presented at the 2017 EAIR Conference in Porto, Portugal in September 2017.
