CIRP Data Archives
The Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) encourages research and scholarly
inquiry using the many data files that we maintain.
Initial funding from the Spencer and Mellon Foundation has made it possible to
place many of our historic data files into public archives for
scholarly access. More recent data files, from 3 to 10 years old,
are available through Data Access
Custom Reports and Data Files.
