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.  Please contact us if you are interested in focus group development, survey implementation, data analysis, and reporting.  Faculty members and deans are invited to contact us when they use their course evaluation findings to improve teaching and learning. Our office also directs college-wide participation in national surveys. 

In support of research at the college, we offer trainings throughout the year through Faculty and Employee Development.  Faculty and staff may join us to learn effective practices regarding focus group facilitation and survey design.  Others may want to learn about the IRB process and the federal regulations that guide our reviews.  Our 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:

Director of Institutional Evaluation, Chris Brown.
