Welcome to the Department of Institutional Research and Grants (IRG), located in the Social Sciences Building, Room 2104 at St. Charles Community College (SCC).
The Department of IRG was established in 1997 as the Department of Institutional Research and Effectiveness. In 2014 the name was changed to IRG to reflect the added functions of the department.
The goal of the Department of IRG is to support SCC’s mission by providing timely, accurate, useful, easily digestible information to the college, the community and other stakeholders. Through reports, data, research and trend analysis, IRG provides responsible parties with the information and tools needed to make data-driven decisions. In addition to providing data, IRG also seeks grant funding for initiatives which further SCC’s mission.
