Institutional Research and Effectiveness

Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS), from the Princeton Review, is a collaboration between university representatives and publishers of college guidebooks (U.S. News & World Report, College Board, and Peterson's Guide). It includes data on admissions, student enrollment, faculty, class size, financial aid and other measures, using standard definitions that aid comparisons between schools. Universities across the country complete the CDS questions each year and submit them for inclusion in college guidebooks.

Federal guidelines reported through IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System) requires enrollment reporting by campus. This will differ from total institutional enrollment (Dayton and Lake combined) which are reported to Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE). CDS reporting reflects Federal IPEDS guidelines.
