The Sierra College Factbook serves as a useful reference tool for managers, faculty and staff as well as other interested educational institutions and the community served by the District. It contains trend data about the District's service area, students, faculty, staff, instructional programs, and services. The Factbook also provides background information to facilitate policy analysis and formulation and permits prompt responses to basic inquiries about the District.
The Research and Planning office currently posts the Factbook online and distributes a small number of hard copies. In the future the office hopes to have an online tool giving all college personnel and the public an accurate and up-to-date look at the performance of the college. Earlier versions of the Factbook are available in the office.
