About Our Office

Who We Are

The Office of Institutional Research and Planning (IRP) serves as a primary resource in building a culture of evidence, as well as bringing statistical and social science research methods on the institutional data found throughout the Foothill-De Anza Community College District.

What We Do

Our office conducts research, plays leadership and consulting roles, and serves as a steward for the institution’s official statistics. 

We support Foothill College in providing information that leads to thoughtful and purposeful decision-making toward equitable student success/outcomes and overall college planning.

Our Goal

To meet the needs of the Foothill College community by conducting research, providing reports and institutional data to be used for inquiry, analysis, and decision making.

Research Requests

To support a culture of evidence, inquiry, analysis, decision-making, and continuous improvement, our office provides research services upon request from college offices and programs. See how to make a  research request

Please submit all requests as early as possible so that we can do all we can to assist you.
