CPRS Select Ongoing Projects

December 30, 1899


The American College President Study (ACPS)​
The American College Pr​esident Study (ACPS), launched by ACE in 1986, is the oldest, most comprehensive and in-depth source of information about the life and work of college and university presidents from all sectors of American higher education. With generous support from the TIAA Institute, CPRS released the eighth edition of the ACPS in June 2017.
Analysis of National Postsecondary Student Aid Survey Data: Post-Traditional Learner Profiles
CPRS is developing the first-ever comprehensive profile of post-traditional learners—including working, service member, single parent, and underrepresented minority learners—to better define and understand how such students pay for college and at what rates they attain degrees. 
A Dream Undone? Higher Education Access and Opportunity in a Shifting Legal Landscape
​CPRS, in partnership with the Civil Rights Project at UCLA and the Center for College & Career Success in Pearson’s Research and Innovation Network, recently conducted a national survey study of admissions and enrollment management leaders. The report Race, Class, & Access: Achieving Diversity in a Shifting Legal Landscape examines how legal challenges to race-conscious admissions are influencing contemporary admissions practices at selective colleges and unviersities around the country. Phase II of the project will employ in-depth case studies on campuses in varying stages of action and success in meeting mission-critical diversity goals; and of varying state, regional, and institutional contexts. ​
Community College Student Success

With support from Hobsons, this quantitative research series aims to better understand the impact of pre-college and college-level characteristics on upward transfer, degree completion, and early labor market success for community college students.​

Research Support for ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement (CIGE) ​
CPRS provides research support for ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement (CIGE) on a variety of projects, such as CIGE’s work on mapping Internationalization​, internationalization in action and good practices for international higher education partnerships
Minority-Serving Institutions Issue and Policy Brief Series
In September 2015, CPRS introduced an issue and policy brief series on public finance and minority-serving institutions (MSIs)​. CPRS researchers and invited scholars use Delta Cost Project data and other relevant data sources to explore the financial profiles of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, tribal colleges and universities, and Hispanic-serving institutions, and consider the financial sustainability of these vital institutions. 
An Analysis of Minority Serving Institutions using National Student Clearinghouse Data

This first-of-its-kind research project analyzes data from the National Student Clearinghouse to examine the pathways and educational attainment of students at minority-serving institutions. This study also features scholarly essays for each MSI type by experts in the field.

Higher Ed Spotlight
Higher Ed Spotlight ​is a collection of infographics that cover relevant and timely issues of interest to higher education stakeholders. CPRS graduate research associates identify topics and conduct analysis for many of CPRS’ Higher Ed Spotlight infographics.
HigherEducation Today (ACE’s Blog Platform)​

CPRS provides commentary and analysis on today’s most pressing concerns and innovative practices in higher education policy and research. Posts have explored issues such as campus climate, higher education rating systems, and food insecurity on campus.
