Research, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness Team
"Whatever may be the limitations which trammel inquiry elsewhere, we believe [that Gavilan College's Division of Research, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness] should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found."
-Adapted from the Ely trial committee report, University of Wisconsin, c.1894.
