Office of Institutional Evaluation

Supporting College-wide Research and Evaluation

Welcome to Valencia College’s office of Institutional Evaluation. Within the division of Analytics and Planning, the office supports college-wide research initiatives, develops and implements program evaluations aligned with the priorities of the college, and oversees the Institutional Review Board (IRB).   

You might work with us as you develop and administer questionnaires – or as you analyze and report your survey findings.  If you are interested in focus group development, implementation, data analysis, and report please contact us.  Our office also directs college-wide participation in national surveys.  Faculty members and deans also turn to us when they use their course evaluation findings to improve teaching and learning. 

In support of research at the college, we offer trainings throughout the year (see our calendar under the resources tab).  Some faculty and staff members join us in order to learn effective practices regarding survey design.  Others want to learn more about the IRB process and the federal regulations that guide our reviews.  The workshops can be tailored for the needs of specific groups.  Please contact us if that would be of help, or let us know if we can support your work in other ways.
