University Information

Carnegie Mellon Factbooks

Beginning in Fall 2018. IRandA is replacing our former Excel-based Factbook with two types of information to be used for different purposes:

  1. Information at a Glance

    These tables are created from University census data and are typically summarized at the highest level (location or college/division). They provide official university summaries of student enrollment, undergraduate admission, employees (available in December), degrees granted, alumni, and space.

    Please use these tables for all external reporting (advisory boards, grant proposals, accrediting agencies, guidebook publications, posting on websites, surveys, etc.).

  2. TartanDataSource (CMU affiliates only)

    TartanDataSource (TDS) is an interactive reporting and analysis platform (SAS Viya) that allows users to customize information tables and visualizations by using filters such as CMU location, college, department, major, and class level.

    Users may download information tables and visualizations as .png files.

    Each report includes a table of contents that describes the tables and visualizations available on each tab, data sources and definitions, and instructions for use.
