SAIRO is the research and assessment office within UCLA’s Student Affairs organization. Our work focuses on keeping Student Affairs staff and other UCLA constituents up to date about the backgrounds, experiences, and needs of students; assisting Student Affairs departments in assessing their services; and contributing to campus- and UC system-wide research and assessment efforts.

Equity Based Assessment is a quarterly training created to assist Student Affairs professionals with integrating an equity lens to their existing assessment practices. Trainings occur over 3 bi-weekly “modules” that explore concepts, theories, and applications for examining and deconstructing systems of oppression within assessment.Entering Student Survey
The Entering Student Survey (ESS) replaced the CIRP and TSS in 2021. This survey provides valuable baseline data about our new student population (both freshman and transfer) as they enter UCLA. The survey allows us to better understand the student experience and assess the services being provided to this population.Dashboard Data Hub
