Research, Evaluation & Program Support
The Office of Research, Evaluation and Program Support (REPS), situated within the Office of the Senior University Dean for Academic Affairs, supports a variety of educational and workforce development programs by providing data and information essential to developing and improving programs and partnerships.
The primary focus of REPS is to examine these programs and the impact they have on students’ academic skills and achievement, college readiness, workforce readiness and other key program outcomes. REPS provides statistical support and analysis, including empirical research and program evaluation, to a variety of audiences, including program administrators, campus officials, and a national audience of educators, researchers and policymakers.
REPS is proud to partner with MDRC and the Community College Research Center (CCRC) on a $4.8-million IES Research Grant to evaluate the CUNY Start program. The U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences has awarded a five-year grant to MDRC, CUNY, and CCRC to evaluate CUNY Start. More >>
