Institutional Research: Analysis & Reports

We offer information, reports and metrics on Common Data Sets (CDS), the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), and the Delaware Study of Instructional Costs and Productivity


Common Data Sets (CDS)

The Common Data Set (CDS) provides answers to many frequently asked questions, statistics and other descriptive information about students, faculty, instructional programs, and student services available at UNCW.  Many institutions voluntarily complete the CDS each year to improve compatibility of data.  Please see the  Common Data Set Initiative for more information.
