The reporting requirements for colleges and universities are substantial (and sometimes overwhelming). Among them, the data reported to the National Center on Education Statistics’ Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is particularly important to get right. Because IPEDS data are public, the data are shared broadly to multiple stakeholders — prospective students, parents/families, legislators, researchers, college guide books, etc.
Occasionally, colleges and universities find that they need additional support and/or expertise with their IPEDS reporting. IEHE provides comprehensive IPEDS Reporting and Review services to institutions that need our help. Our services can include reviewing prior year reports for alignment with IPEDS definitions, identifying opportunities for improved efficiency, and developing infrastructure for managing IPEDS data collection. For institutions that are temporarily without an IPEDS Keyholder, we can serve in that role, working with key stakeholders on your campus to facilitate timely completion of the surveys.
