Institutional Research

Institutional Research coordinates facts and figures, technical reports, and studies at Red Deer Polytechnic. Our purpose is to provide research and information services to Red Deer Polytechnic departments, committees, and individuals in fulfillment of academic and planning functions. The office also furnishes information and data required by the provincial and federal government. We generate data, information, and statistical reports as required by the institution.

Information provided by Institutional Research ranges from simple numeric data to comprehensive reports. Information may also be tailored to meet the special needs of a requestor. Many reports are short summaries that are compiled quickly. Major projects demand detailed planning and implementation and are generally completed over a longer period of time.

We are proud to also work with faculty who conduct a variety of applied research projects each year.

We invite you to read various Red Deer Polytechnic publications and reports, including Red Deer Polytechnic's Annual Reports and Financial Statements, Comprehensive Institutional Plans, Strategic Plans and Economic Impact Studies.
