Using NCES Data Products to Understand the Condition and Progress of HBCUs


The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has developed a suite of tools to measure the vital role that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) play in the education system. These tools include the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), a system of surveys designed to collect data from all primary providers of postsecondary education.

This session will provide an overview of how students, faculty, and administrators can interact with IPEDS data. We will discuss how to access IPEDS data, how to use IPEDS data to answer research questions, and how to share IPEDS data with others.

We will also review the array of postsecondary and elementary/secondary data and tools available from NCES. These data and tools can be used to support research, policy analysis, and decision-making.

This session is designed for students, faculty, and administrators who are interested in using data to understand the role of HBCUs in the education system.
