​Current IPEDS Educators

AIR recruits experienced IPEDS users to develop and deliver a curriculum that takes a broad view of IPEDS data to assure the quality of​ the submission of these data and improve the skills of those using these data. Educators learn from NCES staff about the latest changes to IPEDS and develop their skills with various IPEDS data tools.

The IPEDS Educator Cohort includes 30 trainers serving on two-year appointments.
