Institutional Research

Nunez Community College is responsible for providing not only the resources and facilities necessary for quality instruction and services but also an ongoing evaluation of the quality of its programs and services. Nunez’s quest for quality is exhibited in its Strategic Plan.

The College’s Strategic Plan is broad based and involves faculty, staff, alumni, the community, and students. The Plan evaluates how effectively the institution achieves its goals as outlined in the College’s Mission and Statement of Purpose. This evaluation process encompasses a variety of assessment methods that measure the effectiveness of both educational programs and support services. College personnel then use the results of these assessments to identify strategies for improvement. Once strategies have been identified, the institution seeks to implement changes that will enable it to fulfill its stated purpose.

IR/IE Unit Purpose Statement
