Data rich and information poor - In the news

HEQCO imageThe Hamilton Community Research Partnership (CRP) is pleased to announce the publication of the first research reports from this innovative collaboration. By combining data from multiple school boards and postsecondary institutions, it is now possible to understand the journey of students in Hamilton from kindergarten through graduation of a postsecondary institution.

The CRP is a data-sharing coalition made up of six partners: The Hamilton-Wentworth public and Catholic school bards, McMaster University, Mohawk College, the Hamilton Community Foundation and the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO). These organizations came together to answer critical questions on student pathways and success, in the absence of a larger province-wide option.

This unique partnership project was featured in recent media coverage:
