Data Collection

Each year, Kalamazoo College is required to report counts of faculty and staff to the U.S. Department of Education’s Integrated Post-secondary Education Data System (IPEDS). The required information includes numbers of faculty/staff by employment status (full- or part-time), by faculty status and academic rank, by occupational activity, by gender and by race/ethnicity. No individual names are reported. The College also finds this information useful in tracking institutional progress with respect to representational diversity among faculty and staff. The College also reports aggregated academic degree information.
