Citizen Researcher Campaign

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Research and Planning (IERP) at Santa Rosa Junior College is committed to being a data and information resource to our community of Administrators, Faculty, Staff, and Students. The Citizen Researcher Campaign was created to offer access to the data assets we have available to assess where we are - locally, statewide, and nationally - and to support planning and strategizing for a strong future.
