Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System
The National Center for Education Statistics' core postsecondary education data collection program, the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System is a single, comprehensive system designed to encompass all institutions and educational organizations providing postsecondary education. The system is built around a series of interrelated components that collect institution-level data in areas such as enrollment, program completions, graduation rates, faculty, staff, finances, institutional prices and financial aid.
Campus Crime and Security Statistics
Campus safety and security is an important feature of higher education. The U.S. Department of Education assists schools in providing students with a safe learning environment and keeping students, parents and employees well informed about security. The department is responsible for enforcing the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act, which requires colleges to collect information and publish an annual report on campus crime statistics and campus security policies.
