The Association for Institutional Research (AIR) and the North East Association for Institutional Research (NEAIR) are co-hosting a half-day IPEDS Workshop for data providers and users in conjunction with NEAIR's 2015 PDS Summer Drive-In Workshops. Funding for this workshop is provided by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

This workshop features these training modules:

IPEDS Finance Training for IR Professionals is designed specifically for those persons who are not financial experts and have no training in the field of finance or accounting. The module presents eight objectives including an introduction to higher education finance, GASB vs. FASB, key accounting concepts, a review of the general purpose financial statements and how they relate to the finance survey, reporting comparison challenges, and where and how the data are used. Exercises are included that give participants a hands-on experience in filling out the IPEDS Finance survey and benchmarking with commonly used finance variables. Since the Institutional Researcher is typically not the person filling out the IPEDS survey, this module focuses more on a general understanding of higher education finance and how and why the IPEDS Finance data are used.
