ABOUT US

The Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) was formed in 1983 with the goal of helping liberal arts colleges and universities use data to better their institutions.

This is accomplished through:

Membership

HEDS provides member institutions with access to customizable, comparative institutional and survey data, as well as opportunities for collaboration and networking through an active listserv and annual national conference.

 HEDS Surveys

We administer four student and two alumni surveys to institutions both in and outside of HEDS. These surveys are designed to help institutions better understand the strengths and weaknesses of their academic programs. HEDS members also get unmasked individual- and institution-level data from other HEDS institutions that participate in these surveys.

 Data Exchange

HEDS collects both institutional data from member institutions and public data, and creates interactive data files that it shares with member institutions. These interactive data files allow member institutions to dynamically create and revise custom comparison groups. Data includes AAUP faculty compensation, IPEDS comparison reports, and tuition and fees, to name a few.

 Supporting IR and Assessment

Through surveys, data sharing, and ongoing support from the HEDS community, we aim to help institutional researchers, assessment leaders, and decision makers use data to better understand their institution’s goals, students, faculty, staff, strengths, and struggles.
