The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment is a resource for continuous improvement
- Assessment - collaborates, guides, and provides resources for intentional assessment
practices to encourage a college-wide culture of evidence. The primary goal is to
strengthen the quality of Aims' programs, services, operations, and processes, ultimately
enhancing student learning, development, and success.
- Institutional Research - works collaboratively with all members of the college community
in collecting, analyzing and distributing data and information to support institutional
management, operations, decision-making, planning and external reporting functions.
The office assists with the systematic evaluation of all areas of the college in order
to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the institution.
The IR&A team works together to support the data needs to meet Aims Community College
Core Measures. These Core Measures are part of the Aims Strategic Planning goals.
