Common Data Sets

The Common Data Set is a set of data elements which have been commonly defined by institutional researchers in order to provide consistent, meaningful data for comparison purposes.

UMM's Common Data Set responses are based on data taken at the census date each Fall (October 15th).

Each data set is organized into the following categories:

  • A. General Information
  • B. Enrollment & Persistence
  • C. First-Time First Year (Freshman) Admission
  • D. Transfer Admission
  • E. Academic Offerings & Policies
  • F. Student Life
  • G. Annual Expenses
  • H. Financial Aid
  • I. Instructional Faculty & Class Size
  • J. Degrees Conferred


The Common Data Sets are available for download as PDF documents below:


National Survey of Student Engagement Results

Each year, universities and colleges across the country invite their students to participate in the National Survey of Student Engagement. This survey, conducted by a national educational organization, asks students to assess the nature of their educational experience. In 2007, UMM first-year students and seniors participated in the survey, and the results are below.

For more information on the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), please click here.

For a brief overview of the result highlights without comparison to other universities, click here for the NSSE UMM Pocket Guide.

The five benchmarks areas are:

  • Level of Academic Challenge
