Common Data Set (CDS), 2023-2024

Along with institutions across the country, Butler University participates in the Common Data Set (CDS) initiative each Fall term in an effort to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided about higher education institutions to external reporting groups, such as U.S. News & World Report, Peterson’s, and the CollegeBoard. The CDS consists of 10 sections and includes content from departments across the University, acting as a general institutional FAQ.

Unfortunately, the provided templates for reporting institutional data below are not fully accessible to all website visitors.  If you have questions or need to review the information in a different format, please get in touch with the Office of Institutional Research & Assessment at  We will do our best to accommodate your request while we examine more accessible ways to share this information in the future.
