Common Data Set (CDS), 2016–2017

Butler Campus

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.
