Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment

The Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment gathers, evaluates, and analyzes campus data and provides information about the College both to the general public and to College policymakers. A major role of the office is to provide data analysis in support of the assessment of student learning and of institutional effectiveness. This information informs future policy decisions and program improvements on campus.

The office also serves as the College's representative to outside organizations conducting surveys or research, coordinates reporting on education data to federal and state governments, and monitors College publications to ensure that accurate and appropriate data are published.
