Planning, Institutional Effectiveness, and Research

Our Mission

The Planning, Institutional Effectiveness, and Research Department (PIR) supports the college in integrating department and institutional planning, improving institutional effectiveness processes, and providing accurate, timely, and relevant data to internal and external constituencies (including county, state, and federal agencies as well as program and institutional accreditors).

PIR seeks to foster a collaborative culture in all projects as bringing different campus entities together is one of its greatest opportunities and strengths. PIR work is conducted with a student-centered and proactive focus ensuring data integrity while providing data literacy.

Our Vision

Transforming CSM culture in support of data-empowered decisions to increase student success. - September 2022
