INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH AND PLANNING

Planning


The Office of Institutional Research and Planning provides support for the Planning and Emerging Issues Committee.  In this capacity, the IR office is involved in advising the committee on choosing indicators to be used as a “scorecard” for the institution as well as for the current strategic plan.  The scorecard items are compiled by IR and published as “Key Performance Indicators.” 


Many items from the National Community College Benchmark Project (or “NCCBP,” which PCCC participates in) are used in this process since they make peer comparisons - and therefore “benchmarks” - possible.  Key Performance Indicator and NCCBP summaries can be found here on the PCCC portal (requires login):
