The Mission of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Advancement at South Arkansas College is to lead and assist in developing research protocols; coordinate institutional research; provide timely and accurate data to enhance effective decision making and planning, and continually use feedback to improve the College and help to fulfill its mission and goals.

In an effort to assist you with your research needs, we will post several different sources of institutional information on this section of the website. All documents will be updated periodically.

SouthArk Fact Book:
The SouthArk Fact Book contains regional data acquired from the census, school enrollment and demographic statistics for the specified year, as well as some longitudinal data from the College.

SouthArk Fact Card:
The SouthArk Fact Card is a one page summary of enrollment, top degree programs, graduations, etc. This document is updated several times a year.

Our Main Dashboard is a quick visual reference for some of the most commonly requested information about the College. We are also in the process of adding separate dashboards for benchmark comparisons and strategic plan accomplishments.
