New Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education Website Coming in January 2015

On October 8, 2014, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching transferred responsibility for the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education to Indiana University Bloomington's Center for Postsecondary Research. The Classification will continue to retain the Carnegie name after the Center for Postsecondary Research takes over responsibility on Jan. 1. (Read the full announcement.)

For more information about the new Classifications website, look for an announcement from Victor Borden, professor of higher education and student affairs at the IU School of Education, on January 1 on the IU Center for Postsecondary Research website.

Community Engagement Classification: The application process for the Community Engagement Classification is administered by the New England Resource Center for Higher Education (NERCHE). All information about the Community Engagement Classification can be found on the NERCHE website

During this transition period, the Classifications website will not be available. However, for your reference, the Classifications data file is available for download. This spreadsheet, last updated on July 14, 2014, contains all institutions, classifications, and most underlying data elements, plus IPEDS UNITIDs.
