Curriculum Inventory Reporting (CIR)

The Curriculum Inventory Reporting System, or CIR, is the data system containing information on all credit courses offered in University System institutions. CIR data are used to generate the annual USG budget request and also support research in such areas as course-taking patterns by level and discipline, off-campus and distance education instructional activity by institution and sector, and scheduled facilities use by institution.

The CIR is administered by the Office of Research and Policy Analysis in the Division of Academic Affairs and operated and maintained by that office and Information Technology Services, also a unit of Academic Affairs.
