IPEDS Data Collection and Reporting Mandate

The collection and reporting of gender and race/ethnicity data on the Human Resources (HR) component are mandatory for all institutions which receive, are applicants for, or expect to be applicants for Federal financial assistance as defined in the Department of Education (ED) regulations implementing Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (34 CFR 100). The collection of these data is also mandated by P.L. 88-352, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972 (29 CFR 1602, subparts O, P, and Q). Institutions with 15 or more full-time employees are required to respond to the IPEDS Human Resources component under this mandate. Data are reported in the spring (April) of each year. 

The IPEDS Human Resources Survey collects and reports gender data using a binary system (male and female). Internally, Lawrence is in the process of exploring gender data collection and reporting in a more inclusive manner.  

Faculty

We report faculty data on the IPEDS Human Resources Survey (2005-present), formerly known as the IPEDS Employees by Assigned Positions Survey (2002-2004) and Fall Staff Survey (2002-2003). Faculty includes all full-/part-time individuals whose primary function/occupational activity is primarily instructional as of November 1st of the given year. As a result of the Mellon Foundation’s support of our Faculty Mentorship Program starting in March 2010, overlapping appointments of a retiring senior faculty member and new visiting assistant professors as potential successors, the faculty counts are higher.

Staff

We report staff data on the IPEDS Human Resources Survey (2005-present). Beginning in Fall 2012, new occupational categories replaced the primary function/occupational activity previously used in the IPEDS Human Resources Survey. The change allowed the new occupational categories to align with the 2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) System. The SOC categories include the following as it relates to staff: library and instructional support occupations, management occupations, business and financial operations, computer, engineering, and science occupations; community service, legal, arts, and media occupations; healthcare practitioners and technical occupations, service occupations, sales and related occupations, office and administrative support occupations, natural resources, construction, and maintenance occupations, and production, transportation, and material moving occupations. In Fall 2010 and 2011, primary function/occupational categories included the following: executive/administrative/managerial; other professionals; technical and paraprofessionals; clerical and secretarial; skilled crafts; and service/maintenance.
