The Coordinating Commission recently released Sections A and C of “A Factual Look at Higher Education in Nebraska,” an annual report that includes information from the federal government’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) surveys.
Every college, university and technical/vocational institution that participates in federal student financial aid programs must complete the IPEDS surveys, which gather information on enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty and staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid.
The Coordinating Commission’s research staff analyzes the IPEDS surveys and provides comparative data for Nebraska’s public higher education institutions. For this year’s “Factual Look” report, the Commission’s research staff analyzed IPEDS data from academic years 1999-00 to 2009-10, focusing on five-year and ten-year trends. Section A of the report deals with enrollment; Section C, faculty and salaries. Section B, released in May, deals with degrees and other awards.
