The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is designed to collect data from postsecondary institutions in the United States (50 states and the District of Columbia) and other jurisdictions, such as Puerto Rico. For IPEDS, a postsecondary institution is defined as an organization open to the public that has as its primary mission the provision of postsecondary education. IPEDS defines postsecondary education as formal instructional programs with a curriculum designed primarily for students who are beyond the compulsory age for high school. This includes academic, vocational, and continuing professional education programs and excludes institutions that offer only avocational (leisure) and adult basic education programs. Participation in IPEDS was a requirement for the 6,568 institutions that participated in Title IV federal student financial aid programs such as Pell Grants or Stafford Loans during the 2003-04 academic year. Title IV schools include traditional colleges and universities, 2- year institutions, and for-profit degree- and non-degree-granting institutions (such as schools of cosmetology), among others. In addition, the four U.S. Service Academies are included in the IPEDS universe as if they were Title IV institutions. Tabulations in this report present selected data collected during the winter 2003-04 IPEDS collection about faculty and staff employed at Title IV degree- granting institutions 4 in the United States. Degree granting institutions are those offering associate's, bachelor's, master's, doctor's, and first-professional degrees.
