About IRIS

IRIS is a consortium of universities anchored by an IRB-approved data repository hosted at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research. IRIS was founded in 2015 with support from the Alfred P. Sloan and Ewing Marion Kauffman foundations. IRIS collects record level administrative data from its member institutions and uses those data to produce secondary de-identified research data that can support research and reporting that will improve our ability to understand, explain and improve the public value of research.
