Institutional Research

The research team within the Institutional Effectiveness, Success, and Equity (IESE) Office provides information to enable data-driven decisions that support student success and equity. This transparent availability of information helps decision-makers at all levels (including, but not limited to students, faculty members, classified professionals, and administrators) identify practices and processes that effectively enhance the holistic student experience for our diverse student community. Our work is intentionally inclusive and focused on increasing the accessibility and timely use of data to continuously improve student outcomes. In addition, we are committed to enhancing the Cuyamaca College mission  by being innovative and integrated with other institutional departments.


The Institutional Research team closely coordinates with the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (GCCCD) Research, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness (RPIE) Office to effectively fulfill the College's research and data needs.

Research Requests

The IESE Office serves as the campus liaison to the District RPIE Office. We strive to serve the entire campus community through collaborative research and inquiry. In partnership with the District RPIE Office and our campus practitioners, we manage several concurrent projects at any given time. The research projects that are most highly prioritized are those that are central to core college processes and initiatives, such as accreditation, program review and integrated planning, strategic planning, statewide programs and initiatives, and grant project evaluation. Ad hoc requests are prioritized based on factors such as external deadlines, relevance to the College’s strategic plan, and intended utilization of research results. To initiate an ad hoc research request, please complete the Cuyamaca College Research Request form. The IESE Office will review and prioritize ad hoc requests on a monthly basis in collaboration with the College’s Institutional Effectiveness Council and/or the RPIE Office.


If you are a doctoral or master's student interested in initiating an external research request, please review Research and Ethics Review Committee guidelines and complete Cuyamaca College External Research Request Form.
