Strategy and Information: Reports

The Office of Strategy and Information continually collects data, conducts research, and prepares reports on the College and our students, programs, and services. These reports provide our campus community and the diverse constituencies we serve with indicators of HFC’s overall institutional effectiveness. The indicators measure the degree to which the College is accomplishing various aspects of our mission, and, along with additional research, guide our future planning and strategic initiatives.
