SIRIS (Student Integrated Reporting and Information System) contains information about Stanford’s academic structure and organization as well as information on individual students' enrollment activity and academic plans. These data are integrated alongside course offerings, class enrollments including cross-listings, instructors, and advisors. SIRIS also includes quarterly census counts (taken around the fourth week of each academic term) which provide a stable snapshot for multi-year trends.
One of the main advantages of SIRIS is its restructuring of the underlying data, which make point-in-time reporting and longitudinal analyses possible. SIRIS also adds hierarchies that enable aggregation across groups (such as all professional degrees, or all graduate students in a given department).
If you are currently using the “Student Administration” reports at bi.stanford.edu or if you regularly access the “Campus Community” or PeopleSoft functions through Axess, you may be interested in SIRIS.
SIRIS is sponsored by the University Budget Office and Business Affairs, and is the product of an ongoing collaborative effort between Institutional Research and Decision Support and the Enterprise Technology group within University IT, in consultation with the Registrar’s Office and representatives from the Schools and VP areas.
