The Office of Institutional Research at Carthage College promotes integrated planning, leading to the strategic use of data in organizational decision-making. This initiative is facilitated through the process of collecting, analyzing, and converting data into information.
Understanding institutional data and measuring progress toward goals are essential to the success of any planning effort. The Office of Institutional Research seeks to support informed decision-making, ensuring the accuracy and integrity of institutional data and reports.
The office oversees both internal and external requests for data, supports institutional inquiry though surveys, and maintains historical databases. The resulting reports are made available and communicated as appropriate to support the institutional mission, goals, and planning efforts campuswide.
