Research and Planning

The MJC Office of Research and Planning supports the goals of building a culture of data-driven evidence and promoting overall data transparency by providing the college community with information for strategic decision making and assistance with research projects that improve institutional planning, processes, and effectiveness. 

Institutional Effectiveness 

Integrating institutional effectiveness assessment into the planning process provides a critical component of the planning and evaluation cycle.  The MJC Research and Planning Office links internal data with data collected from the external environment (such as regional and national economic, demographic, and educational data). The Instruction, Student Services, and College Councils use this information to integrate data into strategic planning, assessment and program review procedures along with providing recommendations for future directions and budget allocations for the college.  

Research Support and Data Requests

The Office of Research provides analytic support and consultation on the effective uses of data for a variety of purposes, at the institutional, division, and course levels.  The Office also provides strategic guidance on survey development, analysis and administration.
