The Office of Planning, Research and Institutional Effectiveness provides accurate, relevant information to support planning at the unit and college level that improves student learning and enhances institutional effectiveness. Program Data is central to the Comprehensive Program Review. Retention and success data is disaggregated by gender, ethnicity, and age, to ensure students of all backgrounds are successful in their educational endeavors. Instructional and student service units also draw from other sources to evaluate overall effectiveness, such as survey results.
