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 Spring 2023 semester, all CBU first-year students and seniors were invited to participate in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). A total of 1,030 students responded to the NSSE survey (483 first-years and 547 seniors). CBU's benchmark scores are presented with the scores of peer institutions (N=24), institutions in the same Carnegie classification of Master's Large Programs (N=192), and all institutions who participated in the 2022 and 2023 NSSE administrations (N=796). For further details, please see the NSEE 2023 Engagement Indicators and High-Impact Practices reports.
