Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a joint effort between the higher education community and publishers to improve the quality and consistency of data reported by colleges and universities. The information provided by the CDS include general information, enrollment and persistence, admissions, academic offering and policies, student life, annual expenses, financial aid, instructional faculty, class size, and degrees conferred. 

Economic Impact Reports

The entire CSU system is an economic, social and cultural powerhouse in the state of California, directly or indirectly affecting every resident of the state, as demonstrated in the 2010 Working for California: The Impact od the California State University System report. The 2004 Regional Economic Impact Report highlights in more detail the significant role Stanislaus State plays in solving critical problems and providing innovative solutions for the community and helping to provide a quality of life in the Central Valley that is unparalleled.

Fact Book

The Stanislaus State Fact Book is an annual compilation of university data with the purpose of serving as a resource to the university community as well as the public at large. All data contained in the Fact Book reflects official fall census data and contains many of the common data definitions put forth by the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Survey (IPEDS). The information in the Fact Book can be used for federal and state reporting, grant documentation, classroom assignments, and for strategic planning.

Note: The Fact Books were defunded after the 2008-2009 edition was compiled. A new Fact Book with trend data is expected to be released Spring 2018.

Federal Reporting

(IPEDS) is a system of survey components that collects data from postsecondary education institutions including student charges, program completions, faculty, staff, and finances.
