1) Culture of Assessment – Working with all constituents of the College, staff provides resources, training, and tools to support a culture of reflective practice at the course-, program, and institution-wide levels. This includes using data meaningfully to inform decisions about institution-wide strategic planning, program review, and other types of institutional effectiveness processes. Ongoing assessment workshops and training for faculty and staff helps to build a culture of assessment.

3) Ad hoc research -- Staff members work with various departments and offices within the college to identify areas of needed research.
4) Survey processes – Staff develop, in consultation with offices or departments, surveys to investigate specific college functions or processes.
