Updates include the following:

  • Several Occupational Categories have been renamed, to better describe who should be reported in them:
    • New: Community, Social Service, Legal, Arts, Design, Entertainment, Sports, and Media Occupations (21-0000 + 23-0000 + 27-0000)
      Old: Community Service, Legal, Arts, and Media Occupations
    • New: Student and Academic Affairs and Other Education Services Occupations (25-2000 + 25-3000 + 25-9000)

    • New: Multi-year or continuing or at-will contract

  • Check out the Key Reporting Concepts section in the instructions that will assist you in completing the Human Resources component. These concepts include information on how to report different types of faculty and staff at your institution and provide guidance on reporting salaries.

Graduation Rates Reminder

As a reminder, for institutions that enroll first-time, full-time students, the Graduation Rates (GR) and 200% Graduation Rates (GR200) components will now be collected during the Winter data collection. The Winter collection opens on December 11, 2013, and the Keyholder deadline for submitting these survey components is February 12, 2014. Please plan accordingly. There are no changes to the data items collected, only to the collection period in which the data are submitted.
