BIPM is an integrated student/course data system spanning 1980 to the present, encompassing the entire lifecycle of students from recruitment to degree conferral. The primary use of BIPM is to assist university personnel in having data from which to make internal decision-making and planning. In addition to reporting current and historical data trends, BIPM is also used to forecast outcomes and create student, institutional, geographic and course scoring from models to identify at-risk behavior and recruitment opportunities.
