Nathan Urban, Provost and Senior Vice President, states that all statistical data regarding Lehigh University being released to external parties must first be reviewed and approved by our office, the Office of Institutional Data (OID).

He addresses this issue in a memorandum to the Academic Affairs senior leadership. In particular, the memorandum states that ".. .the releasing of any statistical data regardless of who is requesting the information must first be reviewed and approved by OID. It is particularly important that this is adhered to as it relates to any surveys relating to salaries and rankings."
