The office is the institutional source for tracking annual changes in census enrollment, enrollment by academic unit and student demographics, collects and coordinates information for submission to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), produces the Common Data Set (CDS) to support higher education surveys, conducts in-depth research on student success, and collaborates with Information Technology in the dissemination and online access to data via the Power BI Cloud.
Produces both descriptive reports and inferential studies to support evaluation of university operations for senior management, campus departments and University constituents.
Surveys and reports
Enrollment projections are based on dynamic estimates and are thus updated regularly as new information becomes available. Estimates are derived from a statistical student class level flow model that calculates the 'conversion rate' for students progressing through the enrollment pipeline, while taking into account average credit load, attrition rate, transfer-in rate, student academic preparation, and socio-demographics at each progression stage.
Common Data Set (CDS)
The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.
The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is a system of interrelated surveys conducted annually by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). IPEDS gathers information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs. These data are made available to students and parents through the College Navigator and to researchers and others through the IPEDS Data Center.
