Fact Books and Annual Reports


Annual Reports

This section of annual reports will be replacing our current fact book in the future.


Fact Books

The Fact Book gives general information about the University as a whole. It not only gives information provided by Institutional Research, but other areas of campus as well (Budget Office, Human Resources, Facilities, etc.) The areas included are: General Information, Administration, Faculty, Enrollment, Students, Support organizations, Finance and Facilities. Many of the graphs in the book show a five year trend. There are over 20 years of fact books posted below. If you have questions about the data contained in the fact books, please contact our office at 801-863-7923.

If you would like a printed copy of the fact book, you can purchase one from the Copy Center in the Gunther Trades Building (GT 516d).  Please email gtcopycntr@uvu.edu  or call  801-863-7093 to submit your order.


Common Data Set

The Common Data Set houses general information about the university. It is a way to compare similar data regarding the university to other institutions around the nation. Every institution should fill out the Common Data Set. The Common Data Set is also used as a base for many other surveys. It contains the following areas: General Information, Enrollment & Persistence, First-time, First-year (Freshman) Admission, Transfer Admission, Academic Offerings and Policies, Student Life, Annual Expenses, Financial Aid, Instructional Facilities & Class Size, and Degrees Conferred.


IPEDS Data Feedback Reports

The annual Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System Data Feedback Report (IPEDS DFR)--generated annually in late Fall--graphically summarizes institutional data and provides comparison statistics for the institution and a group of similar institutions, referred to as a comparison group. Comparison groups can either be selectively customized by the institution or automatically generated by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) using an algorithm based on predetermined variables. These comparisons allow for benchmarking and performance evaluation and are also reported in the annual Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) Data Book.
