Common Data Set

Davidson College participates in the Common Data Set Initiative, an effort within the higher education community to define uniform standards for statistical data. Per the Common Data Set website:

"The Common Data Set Initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers."

Common Data Set (CDS) files are provided in PDF format.

As part of Davidson College's ongoing commitment to accessibility for all visitors, archived versions of the CDS are undergoing remediation to make their contents available for all readers, including those with disabilities. Finished files will be made available on this page as they are ready.
