Timely and accurate data are integral to the effective operation of California Baptist University. The information provided below includes some important pieces of student and faculty information that CBU makes accessible to its constituents in order to inform data-driven decision-making.
The Common Data Set (CDS) is a detailed report providing answers to many frequently asked questions about the University. Data are presented in the same "common" format used by most higher education institutions to facilitate comparisons among institutions. This standardized questionnaire was developed through collaboration among colleges and universities, representatives of higher education organizations, the National Center for Education Statistics, the College Board, Peterson's Guides, U.S. News & World Report, and others. For definitions or more information, go to the Common Data Set Initiative.
National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) Benchmark Scores
During the Fall 2016 semester, all CBU first-year students and seniors were invited
to participate in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). A total of 632
students responded to the survey (270 first-year and 362 seniors). CBU's benchmark
scores are presented with the scores of peer institutions (N=7) and institutions in
the same Carnegie classification of Master's Large Programs (N=260). For further details,
please see the NSEE 2017 Engagement Indicators and High-Impact Practices reports.
