The Association for Institutional Research (AIR) and the Florida Association for Institutional Research (FAIR) are co-hosting a one-day IPEDS Workshop for IPEDS Keyholders* in conjunction with the 2018 FAIR Conference. Funding for this workshop is provided by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

The New Keyholder Training workshop provides essential beginner-level training and a thorough introduction to the IPEDS data collection cycle and reporting requirements. Workshop topics outline keyholders’ roles and responsibilities and highlight the resources available to assist in the IPEDS planning and reporting processes. Participants are given the opportunity to create an IPEDS planning calendar for the upcoming data collection cycle. Additionally, this workshop serves as a valuable professional networking opportunity for institutional researchers in their new roles.

Note: This Workshop curriculum is intended for both officially designated IPEDS Keyholders as well as individuals that serve in a secondary (proxy Keyholder) role assisting the official IPEDS Keyholder in the data collection/entry process.​
