College Research and Planning
Welcome to the Columbia College Office of Research and Planning! We are a full-service research department dedicated to the Columbia College community.
How to access research, data, and other information
- All visitors, including members of the public, are invited to start with the college's
Student Achievement Data
to find information about the college. The Columbia College Research Briefs webpage also provides access to reporting on special topics.
- Not seeing what you’re looking for? We are a small shop at a small college, and the best way to get service is just to send us an email indicating the nature of your request. Depending on the request, we may ask to follow up with you by phone. Please plan ahead! Conducting new research or gathering data that is not already found in our online dashboards may take several days or weeks. Be sure to contact us as soon as you begin planning your project, or as soon as you know that you will need to collect data.
Planning surveys, research, and other types of data gathering at Columbia College?
- Please visit our Institutional Review Board and HSRP webpage for more detailed information. All internal and external actors intending to gather information of any sort on the Columbia College campus or from Columbia College’s community members (i.e., students, faculty, staff, and partners) should consult with the Office of Research and Planning prior to beginning any data collection, and should not proceed without an approval or referral.
