I am the WWCC Director of Institutional Planning, Research, and Assessment. The department is responsible for supporting the College’s data and information needs, such as federal and state reporting, accreditation, and program review; program and degree learning assessment; and strategic planning. We also conduct regional, industry/sector, and labor market analysis that informs our work in local and regional economic development, and workforce education.
WWCC is a member of Achieving the Dream, and has a adopted a framework of “continuous quality improvement” with an aim to build institutional capacity on using sound research and evidence to inform decision making, policy, and practice.
This page will be a resource for my research and work related to regional economic development. In due time, I will provide a link to other WWCC web-based resources institutional research, planning and assessment.
