I’m thrilled to continue to serve the higher education community as an IPEDS Trainer and Educator – for the 15th consecutive year. IPEDS and the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) select professionals to serve in this role. AIR recruits experienced IPEDS users to develop and deliver a curriculum that takes a broad view of IPEDS data to assure the quality of the submission of these data and improve the skills of those using these data.
About IPEDS Trainers and Educators
All trainers and educators must attend a two-day training session each summer where they learn from NCES staff about the latest changes to IPEDS and develop their skills with the various IPEDS data tools. Ongoing training through occurs throughout the academic year. Educators also actively engage with colleagues on the AIR Hub IPEDS Knowledge Exchange.
In addition to my work as a national IPEDS trainer for more than a decade, I’ves served as accreditation liaison and headed institutional research, institutional effectiveness, and assessment offices at multiple public, private not-for-profit, and private for-profit institutions. My in-depth knowledge of IPEDS data supports and informs the accreditation process for the institutions she’s served.
Serving as an IPEDS trainer and educator isn’t the only way I engage with IPEDS data. Check out a few of my other projects which inform senior leaders . . .
IPEDS Definitive Guide for Senior Leaders – guide for senior leaders annually. The guide offers the following benefits:
- Summarizes key information about IPEDS
- Offers strategies for overseeing the office that coordinates your institution’s IPEDS reporting
- Poses five questions senior leaders should ask their IPEDS keyholder for each IPEDS submission
- Provides free resources and training for your IPEDS keyholder
Transfer-in Student Success – This project, based on IPEDS data, identified and reviewed institutions which are graduating transfer-in students at higher than expected rates.
