In representing Canada’s public colleges and institutes, research is a critical component of Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan)’s work. In many ways we function like an institutional research team: counting and projecting enrollment, running and analyzing surveys, and wearing many hats within a small team. On the other hand, we serve different clients (140 plus colleges and institutes compared to one for example) and we need to coordinate across different provincial data standards. Join us as we share practices and reflections on how IRP in the centre should include research and planning at the national level.
