In fall 2013, with guidance from the Research Advisory Workgroup, a three-year research agenda was created and aligned with the College of the Sequoias 2010-2015 Strategic Plan. The purpose of the research agenda is to effectively and systematically provide research, data and analysis to guide institutional planning and resource allocation, program review and assessment, and decision-making for institutional effectiveness.
The agenda is designed to support the District’s planning activities, outcomes and assessment cycle, grant requirements, mandated reporting requirements, Essential Learning Initiative, various research projects, accreditation needs, ad-hoc requests, and other requests that directly support the District mission. In collaboration with the Research Advisory Workgroup, the Office of Research, Planning and Institutional Effectiveness develops, prioritizes, assesses and updates the research agenda annually.
