Institutional Research



OIR is deeply troubled by incidents of police violence towards Black/African American people. Our aspiration in OIR is to provide research that uncovers structural causes of disproportionate outcomes, so we can support the development of campus policies and practices that create a more just educational system. We will continue to listen to Black community members, educate ourselves on equity issues and strive to be an active part of the solution.

OIR stands in solidarity with our Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander students, colleagues, and members of the community. We condemn racism, hate, and violence against the AA&PI community. Our office is committed to providing research to support the educational journeys of AA&PI students.

  • Where to Find Data on the IR Website
    Providing the Chabot community with data that makes a difference!

    The mission of the Office of Institutional Research (OIR) is to produce information that is meaningful and useful to the public, the college, and to individual college units (academic, student services, and administrative) for the purposes of inquiry, planning, evaluation, accountability, and compliance. The OIR facilitates the collection, validation, production, analysis, dissemination, and thoughtful use of student, staff, program, and community data.

    Institutional Research plays an integral role in the cycle of planning, assessment and improvement by measuring whether the college and its programs are meeting their goals and addressing the educational needs of our students.


     1. Provide the Chabot community with data for evidence-informed decision making.

     2. Provide the Chabot community with data for inclusive excellence in support of equity.

    Analysis of how the Office of Institutional Research is doing with meeting our service area outcomes can be found: AY 2021-22; AY 2020-21.

    The IR Office is staffed by a full-time Director, a full-time Faculty Coordinator, two full-time Research Analysts, and student research assistants. We are a team committed to equity, inclusive excellence, and high-quality research, data analysis, and presentation. We are located downstairs in building 100 through the doors for room 108 (Learning Resources) along the back hallway in rooms 166, 168, 172,  and 176.

    If you have a research question about Chabot students, staff, programs or the local community that is not answered on this Web site, please complete the Research Request Form.
