Announcing the HEDS First Destination Survey

We are launching a new survey this fall, the HEDS First Destination Survey, which is designed to collect information on the career paths of recent college graduates. The HEDS First Destination Survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and should be administered to graduates who completed undergraduate degrees between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014. Survey administration begins on November 17, 2014 and runs through December 31, 2014. Read more about the survey, administration, and registration.

New Survey for Spring 2015 – HEDS Sexual Assault Campus Climate Survey

In response to concerns about sexual assault on college campuses, we are developing a new survey to assess the frequency of and campus climate surrounding sexual assault. We will post more information about this survey on our website in late October. We plan to administer the survey in the spring of 2015. The base cost will be the same as our other surveys: $500 for HEDS institutions and $1,600 for institutions not in HEDS.

Update on Data Exchanges

New data exchange: Beginning on December 1, HEDS member institutions may exchange starting salary data by completing a survey on Qualtrics (survey link will be provided) with the baseline, entry-level salary for assistant professors as well as the per course base salary for adjuncts for the past three years.

AAUP Faculty Compensation and Common Data Set collections are open. 

HEDS member institutions may indicate their interested in exchanging CIRP TFS data.
