Quick Facts

MSU's Quick Facts page provides an overview of MSU's enrollment, employment, and programs for the current year.

Common Data Set

Another source of information regarding MSU is through the Common Data Set (CDS). The CDS was developed through collaboration among publishers of college guides, colleges and universities, representatives of higher education organizations, high school counselors, and the National Center for Education Statistics. 

Key Performance Indicators (KPI's)

The Key Performance Indicators are an annual report for use in planning and budgeting, developed in consultation with university leaders, department heads, deans, and other decision makers. They contain ten years of department-level expenditures, instructional faculty, student credit hour and student FTE production, majors, and degrees awarded. They include:

  • Instructional Expenditures by Fiscal Year
  • Faculty Instructional FTEs
  • Percent Tenure-Track Faculty
  • Graduate Teaching Assistant FTEs 
  • Expenditures per Student FTEs

Delaware Instructional Costs Study (requires MSU NetID)

The University of Delaware's Office of Institutional Research and Planning conducts a national study of academic productivity and costs. These studies allow for comparisons -- at the departmental level -- with similar departments in similar universities. These data (accessibly only to MSU) can be found here.
