Cooperative Institutional Research Program (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. Access to data files more recent than listed below are available through Data Access for Researchers  or Custom Reports and Data Files.
