Planning and Research

Welcome to the Office of Planning and Research (OPR)

Office Location: Brahan Hall, Room 033
Phone: (518) 629-7353

Our mission is to provide and coordinate information and statistical data that support the planning and research activities of the college as a whole, as well as its individual departments.

In addition, OPR supports and assists the grant-seeking activities of faculty and staff that are consistent with the mission of the college.

The operations of OPR include three primary, and often integrated, functions:

  • Provide institutional data to internal and external constituents
  • Provide grant funding proposal assistance to the academic community
  • Provide administrative planning and research support to the college community and its members
