The Sloan Digital Sky Survey II Supernova Survey (SDSS-II SN), though designed as a type Ia supernova search for cosmology, also discovered a large sample of core collapse supernovae (CCSN). I use the SDSS-II SN data to measure the volumetric CCSN rate in the redshift range (0.03 < z</italic> < 0.09), finding a volume-averaged rate of 0.98±0.18 × 10-4yr-1([special characters omitted] Mpc)-3. The CCSN luminosity function is also extracted from the data, and its implications on the cosmic star formation history are considered.
