Bucknell Common Data Set
What is the Common Data Set?
In 1997, the Common Data Set (CDS) was created in response to increasing requests for data from colleges and universities. The CDS is a means for colleges and universities to collect and report comparable data, using standardized definitions, to higher education data providers and publishers.
Goals of the CDS include improving the accuracy and comparability of information reported about higher education and reducing the reporting burden on data providers. For more information on the CDS, visit http://www.commondataset.org
