The Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness (PIE) oversees the development and execution of strategic and operational planning throughout the college. This office works in a collaborative manner with academic departments, finance, technology, and marketing and communications.

Within the office, Institutional Research (IR) prepares analytical studies, conducts research, and compiles reports on scientific findings to support planning efforts. The team is tasked to gather, analyze, and summarize data relevant to ECC's students, faculty, staff, administrators, board of trustees, and other stakeholders within the community.

Through statistical research, PIE meets the detailed reporting needs of higher education associations and state and federal agencies in areas such as accreditation, program success results, policy effectiveness, student success and retention rates, enrollment projections, and other reports.
