This page provides links to the standardized IPEDS (Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System). These reports summarize data used by external organizations to understand and represent the college (U.S. News, the Federal Government, etc.). External measures of performance are a critical aspect to evaluating the status of the college from a non-biased perspective.
According to IPEDS, the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data
System (IPEDS) is a system of survey components that collects data from about 7,500 institutions that provide postsecondary education across the United States. IPEDS collects institution-level data on students (enrollment and graduation rates), student
charges, program completions, faculty, staff, and finances. These data are used at the federal and state level for policy analysis and development; at the institutional level for benchmarking and peer analysis; and by students and parents, through the College Navigator (http://collegenavigator.ed.gov), to aid in the college
search process. For more information about IPEDS, see http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds.
What Is the Purpose of This Report? The Data Feedback Report is intended to provide institutions a context for examining the data they submitted to IPEDS. Our goal is to produce a report that is useful to institutional executives and that may help improve the quality and comparability of IPEDS data.
The figures provided in this report are those suggested by the IPEDS Technical Review Panel. They were developed to provide selected indicators and data elements for your institution and a
comparison group of institutions. The figures are based on data collected during the 2012-13 IPEDS collection cycle and are the most recent data available. Additional information about these indicators is provided in the Methodological Notes at the end of the report. On the next page is a list of the nstitutions in your comparison group and the criteria used for their selection. Please refer to “Comparison Group” in the Methodological Notes for morei nformation
