U. S. News & World Report data collection

We may need your help! The U. S. News & World Report (USNWR) data collection opened this week.  The USNWR Rankings (that you may be hearing about more often these days) are released each fall and are based on three surveys in this collection:  Main, Finance, and Financial Aid. 

The Office of Research Administration (ORA) will be working diligently over the next few weeks to collect the data needing to be entered and submitted in these surveys.  If Kristin McKinley or Sarah Dunnagan has contacted you in the past (or you recently took over a role contacted in the past) about survey questions pertaining to your area, we will again be reaching out to you as soon as possible for confirmation of rolled-over or updated responses.  As in previous years, we will likely request a less than two week turn-around time for your answers.  This is necessary because we need time to not only complete the 147-page Main Survey but the institution’s designated administrators also need sufficient time to review and approve the surveys prior to the June 1st submission deadline. 

Thank you in advance for your expertise and help in this collaborative effort!
