Mission Statement

The mission of the San Bernardino Community College District’s Office of Research, Planning and Institutional Effectiveness is to collaborate with faculty, staff, and administrators to facilitate and support planning and evidence-based decision-making. The office integrates institutional research, planning, analysis, and continuous improvement to advance learning and institutional effectiveness and to support the missions of the colleges and the district. The office seeks to meet the needs of the District by supporting, promoting, and coordinating:

  • Access to information and high quality data management services through self-service reports and web tools to improve decision-making at the District and each of the colleges
  • Short and long range District-wide planning and decision making
  • Reporting to Federal, State, and Accrediting agencies
  • Integration of strategic planning, District goals, central services goals, college goals, and institutional data
  • Meaningful discussions examining the District’s role and performance
  • Evidence to stimulate thoughtful reflection on existing practices and encourage ongoing review and improvement
  • The use of accurate, timely, and accessible information in a professional and ethical manner

Vision Statement

The San Bernardino Community College District Office of Research, Planning and Institutional Effectiveness will facilitate the San Bernardino Community College District becoming a "Learning Organization," which is the ultimate institutional effectiveness outcome. A Learning Organization “grows and adapts through ongoing innovation tuned to current, emerging, and future needs." Further, it "celebrates a "culture of 'wonder'...where data-supported intelligence can be agreed upon so people can focus on being successful" (Goben, 2007, p. 4).
