many other uses. It can provide a detailed profile of the characteristics of an institution’s
new students as a pretest or baseline of data for studying student change and
development during college. For more information regarding potential uses of this survey
and of various CIRP follow-up surveys, contact the Higher Education Research Institute
at (310) 825-1925 or heri@ucla.edu.

The Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) has administered the Freshman
Survey since 1966, surveying more than 13 million incoming first-year students at 1,900
colleges and universities nationwide. The CIRP Freshman Survey documents the
changing nature of students' characteristics, values, attitudes and behaviors. The data
have helped shape public opinion about key issues related to the concerns of college
youth and continues to contribute to critical policy considerations in education. The
Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at the University of California-Los Angeles
(UCLA) is housed in the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies.
The institute serves as an interdisciplinary center for research, evaluation, information,
policy studies and research training in post-secondary education
