Institutional Research and Effectiveness Services
The Institutional Research and Effectiveness Services Department works with college-based Institutional Research Offices to support performance measurement throughout the district.
Our mission is to "collect, compile, analyze and provide data in support of district-wide decision making, policy construction, and resource allocation."
Our department seeks to provide data accurately and in a timely fashion to support your work. We welcome your data and research requests and look forward to serving your needs.
The Factbook is a compendium of data and trend analyses on a wide variety of topics pertaining to the operation of the Alamo Colleges. Its contents are designed to inform its readers and answer the most frequently asked questions about Alamo Colleges.
It should be noted that some data presented in this publication may differ from data found in other College or District reports. Such variances are attributed to differences in information sources, the date reports were generated, or the reporting period included in the report.

Measures of Student Success
Achieving the Dream was created to help more community college students succeed - complete courses, earn certificates, and earn degrees. All Alamo Colleges are participating in this initiative to increase the success of low income students and students of color.
Data will be provided to reflect the identified student outcome indicators that follow:
- Successful completion of remedial courses and progression to college-level courses.
- Enrollment and successful completion of college-level "gatekeeper" courses.
- Productive grades (C or higher) in all courses.
- Semester to semester persistence.
