Research & Planning

Our mission is to provide support for the program evaluation and planning needs of the institution through the collection and analysis of both demographic and survey data. Our goals are:

  1. To meet the data/analysis needs of the requestor in a timely manner, based on the best available data; and
  2. To present findings in clear, concise, and easy-to-understand/useful formats.

The areas for which we provide support include the review and evaluation of the Instructional and Matriculation programs, the validation of placement tests, the evaluation of disproportionate impact, the validation of course prerequisites, and the assessment of student needs. Upon request, we can prepare contact lists, mailing labels, and/or custom reports on defined student subpopulations. We also serve as a resource for the design and development of data collection instruments (surveys).

To make a request for data or dashboard creation, please email with a description of what you will need and roughly when you will need it.  A member of our team will then be able to reach out to you to cover timelines and additional information.  Please submit your request at least two weeks prior to the date the data are needed.  Please be aware that some data requests may take longer, so feel free to submit the ticket as early as you identify the need.

For emergency requests, please include the word “Emergency” in the subject of your email, and we will evaluate the process under an expedited timeline.
