The Cuesta College Office of Institutional Research provides regular and reliable institutional data and data analysis in support of the college mission and student learning.

"Institutional Research has to do with what decision makers need to know about an institution, its educational objectives, goals and purposes, environmental factors, processes, and structures to more wisely use its resources, more successfully attain its objectives and goals, and to demonstrate integrity and accountability in so doing."                              Paul L. Dressel, 1981
