Institutional Research and Decision Support (IRADS) provides institutional data to many external organizations. The benefit of our doing so is both the marketing value Chapman's inclusion provides and the ability to find information about other institutions. The links below point to Chapman's profile on some of the more useful of these aggregators. Comparable data for competitor and other institutions can be found through a simple search of the sites.

IRADS also provides detailed datasets to various government agencies and private organizations.  Some, in turn, publish the collected data and/or their research findings.  

Federal, State, and Other Information Sources

The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is the most widely useful of these resources, providing various tools for accessing data on all Title IV-eligible schools on their Use the Data page.  Of particular note, their 'Compare Institutions' tool (formerly called the Peer Analysis System) allows for querying the entire IPEDS database and downloading data for analysis.  IRADS is happy to assist you in understanding the IPEDS database and acquiring needed peer data.
