Sharing Data Within the Consortium
Our members have earlier access to more comprehensive retention and graduation data than that released by IPEDS and SAM. All CSRDE report data given by total cohort and broken down by gender and race/ethnicity.
Colleges and universities are always looking for ways to improve the success of their students and it is our mission to help you. Our annual reports provide the information you need to easily fulfill requests for benchmarking data to accrediting agencies and other entities. Your participation in our data-sharing consortium demonstrates your institution’s proactive efforts to self-monitor and review progress.
Offered to four-year, public and private nonprofit colleges and universities, institutional membership provides access to timely, comprehensive benchmarking data on retention and graduation. This information is not available from any other source. Participants submit data for our annual reports, and the CSRDE handles the data auditing, internal consistency checking, analyses and reporting, saving the institution time and money.
Reports & Surveys
All members submit data for at least one of our three annual retention reports as a condition of membership. For each survey completed, the participating institutions receive a copy of the corresponding report within a few months. Members agree to use the CSRDE data for internal benchmarking purposes only and to maintain the confidentiality of fellow consortium members’ data.
All CSRDE surveys and reports are included in our calendar.
