Institutional Research

The Office of Institutional Research and Grants Development (IR) provides analysis and support for institutional decision-making and planning at all levels throughout the college. IR collects, analyzes, reports, and warehouses quantitative and qualitative data which is used to comply with state and federal regulations, support accreditation, prepare grants, and enhance institutional effectiveness efforts. 

Grants Development

IR also provides leadership and guidance in preparing and submitting grant proposals from all areas of the college. By working one-on-one with grant seekers, IR can support faculty and staff, novice or experienced. We work with grant seekers on many levels, beginning to advanced, to ensure high-quality applications. From basic research to final submission, we can help plan and create proposals, develop support teams, and provide guidance along the way.

Acquiring government or private funding is a daunting task. Grant seekers need not work alone! If you have an idea for a project you would like to see funded, we can provide you with the support you need.
