Common Data Set
The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Thomson Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the excellence and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.
Data items and definitions used by the U.S. Department of Education in its higher education surveys often serve as a guide in the continued development of the CDS. For more information please visit, the Common Data Set website.
In the table below, Akron Campus Common Data Sets are available with Main campus information. Combined Akron and Wayne CDS is comprised of information for both the Main campus as well as the branch campus.
