About HACC

Institutional Research and Assessment

"At its best, institutional research is the center of gravity for all of the university's analytical and decision support activities —the internal and the external, the formative and the summative, the administrative and the academic. By filling these needs, IR illuminates all the institution's endeavors." (Volkwein, Liu &Woodell, 2012)

HACC has joined the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment with the Office of Curriculum Compliance and Assessment. They lead and promote HACC's Institutional Effectiveness efforts. Learn about institutional research and assessment.
