Cooperative Institutional Research Program Reports

 

The Cooperative Institutional Research Program’s Freshman Survey (CIRP) was introduced in 1966. It was given to entering students at colleges and universities across the country and was the longest standing research on student’s attitudes, beliefs, and plans in the nation. This year 282,549 first year students were surveyed at 437 participating institutions. The CIRP was administered by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at the University of California— Los Angeles with additional support from the American Council on Education. The CIRP Freshman Survey data was regarded as the most comprehensive source of information on college students and served as a resource for researchers in higher education around the globe (Sax, Lindholm, Astin, Korn, & Mahoney, 2002).
