Our Mission

The District's Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness (IRE) supports the District's Mission, Vision, and Strategic Goals and Plans through a variety of planning activities, District-wide ongoing and ad hoc research projects, the development of resources and training for faculty and staff, and mandated reporting to local, state, and federal agencies.

Our Vision

The Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness (IRE) informs the District's decision making by providing timely, accurate data, documentation, and analyses. We aim to empower and encourage the College-wide community to utilize data resources to enhance student achievement and strive to promote the transparency of research results and planning processes.

The District's research function is guided by the standards of quality institutional research as outlined by the Research and Planning (RP) Group, the California Association of Institutional Research (CAIR), and the Association of Institutional Research (AIR).
