The Data Feedback Report from IPEDS graphically summarizes selected institutional data and compares that data with peer institutions. LSSU submits information to the National Center for Educational Statistics, which includes student enrollment data, student retention rates, graduation rates, etc. The IPEDS Data Feedback Reports (DFR) are publicly available at: https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/Home/UseTheData and reproduced below for convenience.

Common Data Set

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 those involved in a student’s transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers. This data is maintained by LSSU’s Office of Institutional Research: https://www.lssu.edu/institutional-research/common-data-set/
