If you have questions about HEDS, including membership, surveys, data sharing, workshops, or assessment/institutional support, email us, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

The Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium serves the needs of private higher education for institutional research, decision support, assessment, and the advancement of liberal learning.


Call for Proposals

We are inviting proposals for the 2015 HEDS Annual Conference, which will take place in Portland, Oregon on June 13–17. We encourage individuals at all points in their careers who are engaged in institutional research, assessment, or institutional effectiveness, or who are in other ways using data to improve their institution’s effectiveness, to submit a proposal. We welcome participants from all colleges and universities—you do not have to be from a HEDS institution or be an institutional researcher to submit a proposal or attend this conference. More>>

Announcing the HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey

We are pleased to announce that campuses can now register for the 2015 HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey. Both HEDS members and institutions that are not members of HEDS may sign up to participate in this new survey.

The HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey is designed to collect information about students’ perceptions of your campus’s climate for unwanted sexual contact and sexual assault, students’ perceptions of how your institution addresses and responds to sexual assault, and whether and how often students have experienced unwanted sexual contact or sexual assault.

Institutions can administer the 2015 HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey for any 3–6 week period between January 15 and April 30, 2015.

Registration Open for HEDS surveys

Institutions may register for the HEDS Alumni Survey, the spring administration of the HEDS Research Practices Survey, the HEDS Senior Survey, and the HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey. See more information for all HEDS surveys here.
