CIRP Data Archives

The Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) encourages research and scholarly inquiry using the many data files that we maintain. Initial funding from the Spencer and Mellon Foundation has made it possible to place many of our historic data files into public archives for scholarly access. More recent data files, from 3 to 10 years old, are available through Data Access or Custom Reports and Data Files.

Currently available datasets

  • CIRP Freshman Survey Trends: 1966 to 2006
  • CIRP College Senior Survey Trends: 1994 to 2006
  • HERI Faculty Survey Trends: 1989 to 1998
