The Cornell College Fact Book provides a picture of the College's performance over time on such key variables as admissions, enrollment, student body profile, faculty salaries and benefits, and financial indicators. These longitudinal, or trend, data come primarily from internal sources at the College. The Fact Book also compares the College's standing on these variables in relation to peer, aspirant, regional, highly selective institutions and to the Associated Colleges of the Midwest. Comparative data come primarily from the Department of Education's Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). As always, these data can inform decision-making but also should be viewed critically, with a recognition of the context and the potential limitations of the data sources.
Questions concerning the Fact Book should be directed to the Cornell College Office of Institutional Research and Assessment.
