Starting in 2015, Indiana University Bloomington’s Center for Postsecondary Research is taking ownership of the Carnegie Classifications of Institutions of Higher Education.
Produced by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching for over 40 years, the classifications offer valuable insights into the landscape of the diverse institutions that comprise U.S. higher education.
According to Carnegie President Anthony S. Bryk, Indiana was chosen to take over the classifications “because its mission aligns with Carnegie’s efforts to promote student success through institutional effectiveness.”
The center also has been awarded $500,000 from the Lumina Foundation to enhance the classifications so that they more accurately reflect the growth and change in higher education.
Next set for release early next year, the system will retain the Carnegie Classifications title.
