Institutional Effectiveness & Strategic Analytics


The mission of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Analytics is to empower the college community at all levels to utilize data, analytics, information, and evidence to make data-informed decisions and take actions that benefit students and support institutional planning, assessment, and institutional effectiveness.


Our vision is to maintain a key role at the college through accurate, timely and high-quality analysis to support planning, assessment, and a culture of data-informed decision making. We seek to be recognized as a source of reliable "institutional intelligence" and to be the leader in promoting a culture that leverages data and analytics, critical for decision-making and continuous institutional improvement that shapes HCC's future.
