Announcements:

• As the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Winter collection concludes, we wish to thank each individual in the various offices on the UWG campus who contributed to fulfilling the data requirements. Much of the information is uploaded to IPEDS at the University System of Georgia (USG) system level directly from the USG/BOR data warehouse, however, the burden of completion remains on each individual institution. IEA appreciates the time, effort and consideration that each contributor gives to the IPEDS data collection effort.

The IPEDS Spring collection includes the Fall Enrollment, Finance, Human Resources, and Academic Libraries components. A representative in each of these areas has received log in credentials and temporary passwords. If you need additional information or assistance from IEA please contact us at your earliest convenience. Please submit your completed submission by March 30, 2016 so that IEA may submit the collection to the USG IPEDS coordinator.

Again, we are appreciative and wish to say THANK YOU to everyone at UWG who is involved in the IPEDS reporting process.
Previous year's IPEDS Feedback Reports are available here.

Compliance Notice: Mandatory Reporting Requirements for Institutions with Program Participation Agreements
Section 490 of the Higher Education Amendments of 1992 (P.L. 102-325) requires that "institutions will complete surveys conducted as part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS)…in a timely manner and to the satisfaction of the Secretary". Thus, reporting to IPEDS is mandatory for institutions that participate in or are applicants for participation in any Federal financial assistance program authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (20 USC 1094, Section 487(a)(17)).

• Dr. Bruce Schulman, Professor of History at Boston University, will present Three Elections that Reshaped the Presidency and the Nation – 1964, 1968, 1972, on Tuesday, February 23, at 11 am, in Ingram Library. His talk is in association with the exhibit, Private Presidential Pathways: The Photograph of George Tames, on display at Ingram Library February 8 through March 4. This program and exhibit are sponsored by Ingram Library’s Penelope Melson Society.
In this program, Dr. Schulman will explore how the three pivotal elections of 1964, 1968, and 1972 transformed American public life for generations. These three elections witnessed more than a shift in ideology or in the fortunes of the two major parties. They ushered in fundamental changes in presidential politics — in the ways candidates campaigned for the nation’s highest office, the manner in which parties selected their nominees, and how presidents governed the United States.
Dr. Schulman is William Huntington Professor of History and Chair of the History Department at Boston University. He is the author of three books on the political history of the 1960s and 1970s. He has additionally written for The New York Times and The Washington Post, among other newspapers, and has served as a consultant and commentator on ABC News, PBS, and the History Channel. Due to his major contributions to the study of American history, Schulman was named to be part of the Organization of American Historians’ “Distinguished Lectureship Program.”
On the day of Dr. Schulman’s talk, special public parking will be provided in the Townsend Center gated lot beginning at 10 am.
This project is supported by Georgia Humanities through appropriations made by the Georgia General Assembly.
