Institutional Profiles

The Office of Institutional Analysis (IAP), in cooperation with other campus units, participates in a variety of national accountability, ranking, and benchmarking efforts. Much of the data are available through national datasets such as the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the Consortium for Student Retention Data Exchange (CSRDE), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and US News and World Report. Other data sharing efforts focus on presenting information in a comparable format, such as that provided in the Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA) College Portrait, and the Common Data Set (CDS). This section provides links to these studies, as well as to nationally available resources that the staff in IAP use in peer comparisons and analyses.
