Request Our Assistance

Our office reports college demographics and data to state and federal entities. In addition, we assist CCD departments and programs to obtain accreditation, grants, and other resources through accurate data and analysis. Other services include data analysis, assessment, survey design, institutional research, training to use Cognos, and program evaluation.

To request COGNOS training, please send an email to Please include the number of faculty or staff needing training, time, and location (please include 2-3 times that would work). Training locations need to have at least one computer available, and preferably one computer per person. You can also request training in the IR&P offices, but it is better if you are signed onto your own computer. You must already have Cognos access to request training.
