The core purpose of Institutional Research (IR) is to support data-informed decision-making campus-wide. This is achieved by providing timely, accurate, and meaningful data and analysis to campus constituents in an easily understood format. In addition, IR supports compliance with regulatory reporting including but not limited to, federal, state, and accrediting agencies.
The Environmental Scan provides detailed trends and projections of Ocean County College’s population and communities that may effect the advancement of the college’s overall mission. The College utilizes this data in order to distinguish important trends and better understand external influences that impact the institution.
In addition to the fact book and environmental scan, the Office of Institutional Research publishes a variety of reports to support decisions across campus.
- Graduate exit survey results
- Retention studies
- Noel Levitz student satisfaction results
- College employee satisfaction survey results
- Developmental education studies
- Course success reports.
