Criteria for Institutional Research Projects

The Office of Institutional Research and Planning (OIRP) receives many requests to develop and to conduct surveys or other research efforts and to provide summarized results. Due to limited staffing and resources to accommodate all in-coming requests, OIRP priorities will be guided by the following criteria:

  • Projects which support initiatives of the president and the cabinet.
  • Projects which support directly the strategic plan of the College and are included in the operational plan for the academic year in question. 
  • Projects which have broad institutional impact.
  • Projects which support SUNY-wide initiatives.
  • Projects which support the institution’s regional or professional accreditation requirements.
  • Projects which support institutional effectiveness and continuous improvement.

Other projects would be considered as time and staff availability permits.
