Stephen Hancock is a Management Data Analyst with the Office of Student Data, Analysis and Evaluation at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. His primary focus is on transfer student patterns and performance. In order to better understand transfer students from both a university and community college perspective, Stephen is in a split position between IUPUI and Ivy Tech’s central region. Coming from six years of experience in operations management with various copier companies and eight years of general management experience, he has been working in Institutional Research for only a year and a half. His greatest accomplishment to date in this field is avoiding giving presentations at two separate conferences. Seriously, if you worked in IR you’d be surprised how difficult it is to avoid giving presentations. His wife had to have a baby at just the right time to avoid one of them. Stephen received his Bachelor’s in Business Administration and Marketing from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
