Research, Analytics and Planning

Welcome to the division of Research, Analytics and Planning! As its name implies, the purpose of the division is to coordinate and evaluate institutional planning and assessment processes and to conduct institutional research in support of the college’s continuous improvement efforts. The division recognizes the value of teamwork and broad-based participation in its endeavors. In fact, we believe they are essential in order to promote the  college’s Vision, Mission and Values as well as to support a campus climate that is conducive to continuous improvement. (Note: Several of the following documents are available via internal access only.)
