The Commons Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in higher education and publishers to develop a core set of clear, standard data, and definitions regarding student cohorts. The Common Data Set includes information in the following categories:
- General information about the institution
- Data on enrollment, persistence, and graduation categorized by gender, ethnicity, and financial aid status
- Application and selection policy
- Freshmen academic profile
- Transfer student data
- Student life features
- Annual student expenses and financial aid
- Instructional faculty and class sizes
- Disciplinary areas and degrees conferred
OIRA maintains an archive of the Common Data Set for UMaine.
