Welcome to The Office of Research, Strategic Planning and Grant Development.

The Office of Research, Strategic Planning and Grant Development at Ozarks Technical Community College collects, analyzes, reports, and warehouses quantitative and qualitative data about the College’s students, faculty, staff, curriculum, course offerings, and learning outcomes. This office is involved in collecting and reporting information to government bodies, to the public, and college guide publishers. This office also provides evidence to regional and national accreditation bodies to document how OTC fulfills the standards for accreditation.

In addition, this office assists faculty, staff, and administrators seeking external funding through grant opportunities and plays an integral role in securing funds that go directly toward serving OTC students and others in our service region.
