Chris Maxwell - One Brick Higher Award
The One Brick Higher Award is a special honor at Purdue. It is presented to faculty, staff and students who go beyond the requirements of their role to improve the lives of those around them, increase the effectiveness of the workplace and/or prevent or solve problems. It is given to faculty, staff and students who undertake their work with extra vitality, extra care, extra creativity and extraordinary effort.
Maxwell's work in the Office of Institutional Research involves compiling, analyzing and modeling data for a variety of uses, which in the past year included the Provost's Academic Assessment project, U.S. News and World Report data, data for the annual ADVANCE grant, and a faculty retention database, to name a few. Maxwell has also made significant contributions to the Association of American Universities Data Exchange (AAUDE) in developing new tools to make data more accessible, and he is regarded nationally by institutional research colleagues for his extensive knowledge and technical expertise.

As director of the Office of Institutional Research (OIR), Jacque Frost leads the office that serves as the go-to resource for information about Purdue students, faculty, staff and resources. Recalling these facts and figures would require an almost superhuman memory, but the six-person OIR team has networks of resources capable of drawing University data from campus and beyond.
