    Oregon Community College Unified Reporting System (OCCURS)
    OCCURS - The Oregon Community College Unified Reporting System is a collaboratively designed and maintained base of data relating to the seventeen Oregon community colleges. Personnel from each of the community colleges and from the Department of Community College and Workforce Development work with OCCURS staff to create common data standards, definitions, reporting formats, and general policy for the system's operation. Unit record student data from each of the colleges, along with course, program, financial, and other supporting data, are submitted to the central OCCURS office according to an agreed upon schedule. At the OCCURS office, the data are compiled into aggregate and summary reports, and processed for exchange with the Oregon Shared Information System, the Office of Professional Technical Education's Management Information System (OPTEMIS), and other statewide data systems.

    The purpose of OCCURS is to collaboratively define and implement a standardized base of data which will allow community colleges to:
    1. Provide comparable data for effective and timely response to state and federal reporting requirements.

    2. Provide data back to the individual community colleges for use in educational planning and improvement, conducting research on the effectiveness of community college programs, maintaining records, and providing support services.
