The Benefits of a Comprehensive, Integrated, and Granular Data System for Community and Technical College Institutional Research
Schoenecker, Craig
New Directions for Institutional Research, n147 p81-108 Fall 2010
This chapter describes the system office for community college institutional research for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities. What makes this System Offices for Community College Institutional Research (SOCCIR) somewhat different from the others reviewed in this volume is that the Minnesota system IR office has responsibilities for both two-year and four-year institutions. The fact that the system's board has governing authority over its institutions and that it implemented a common integrated record system has also influenced the roles and responsibilities of the system IR office. The chapter describes the system's organization and information infrastructure, the IR office's staffing and functions, its role in developing and implementing an accountability framework for the system, how the unit has changed, and prospects for the future of IR in the system. How the unit's role is affected by supporting both two-year colleges and universities also is discussed. (Contains 5 tables and 1 figure.)
