Office of Research & Institutional Effectiveness


 Mission Statement

Embracing  a culture of inquiry driven by data-informed decisions,  the Office of Research and Institutional Effectiveness provides reliable, accessible data, research, and tools, supports research collaboration, and fosters innovative thought for the Shasta College community and local partnerships in efforts to achieve institutional goals and objectives.


Our Focus


Higher education institutions today are being asked by their accrediting agencies and communities to describe qualitatively and quantitatively their activities and outcomes. Institutions must adopt a culture of using data and examining evidence as part of the planning and decision making processes.

 The Office of Research and Institutional Effectiveness, in collaboration with various administrative and instructional offices within the college, is the focal point for such analyses and dissemination of such data.
