The University Factbook provides general information about the university to anyone interested. It is a convenient source for statistics on enrollment, students, academics, retention, graduation, faculty, staff, tuition, and fees.
The Common Data Set (CDS) is a collaboration between data providers in the education community and publishers. The goal of this collaboration is to provide quality and accurate information to any and all those involved in a student’s transition into higher education.
The CDS is organized around 10 topics: (A) general information, (B) enrollment and persistence, (C) first-time, first-year admission, (D) transfer admission, (E) academic offerings and policies, (F) student life, (G) annual expenses, (H) financial aid, (I) instructional faculty and class size, and (J) degrees conferred.
and Campus Security Act of 1990 require all colleges and universities to disclose their graduation rates, information on athletes receiving athletics-related financial aid, crime statistics, and campus security policies.
