Welcome to the Office of Institutional Research, Planning and Effectiveness (IRPE) website.

IRPE supports the college's mission by providing data and analysis mostly related to program reviews in Instruction, Academic Support, and Student Services programs; the identification of measurable outcomes; and benchmarking progress toward longstanding institutional priorities and commitments. Objectives, activities, and programs calling for increased student access, equity, success, persistence, and completion of educational or vocational goals require proper identification of outcomes and data to hone in on targets for improvement and change. Although it is each program and department's responsibility to initiate the research study needed for evaluation and program improvement, IRPE provides support through research and data analysis to assist the departments in meeting their goals.
