Carnegie Classification 2010 Updates for The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey http://classifications.carnegiefoundation.org/
All-inclusive v. Elective Classification All-inclusive classifications are based on national data sets, primarily IPEDS, College Board & NSF Empirical framework for research/sampling 1973 updates: 1976, 1987, 1994, 2000, 2005, 2010 Elective classifications are voluntary, based on an exhaustive self-study and application McCormick & Zhao (2005) “Rethinking and Reframing” in Change outlines the five new dimensions and debuts two elective categories: – community engagement (current pilot) – improvements to undergraduate education
Community Engagement Three rounds of selection: 2006 & 2008 (had 3 categories: Curriculum, Outreach & Both) 2010 had Curriculum & Outreach ONLY Stockton applied for Outreach only in 2006 (rejected) Stockton EARNED Curriculum & Outreach in 2010 The Foundation defines community engagement as the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
New 2010 Carnegie Classification for Stockton Undergraduate Instructional Program Classification Graduate Instructional Program Classification (2) Graduate Instructional Program Classification(2) Enrollment Profile Classification Undergraduate Profile Classification (3) Undergraduate Profile Classification(3) Size & Setting Classification Basic Classification (1) Basic Classification(1)
Undergraduate Instructional Program Classification (15 categories*) A&S+Prof/SGC: Arts & sciences plus professions, some graduate coexistence. A&S+Prof/SGC: Arts & sciences plus professions, some graduate coexistence. 60–79 percent of bachelor’s degree majors were in the arts and sciences, and graduate degrees were observed in some of the fields corresponding to undergraduate majors (but less than half).
Graduate Instructional Program Classification (18 categories) S-Doc/Other: Single doctoral (other field) Based on the degree data, these institutions award doctoral degrees in a single field other than education (they may have more extensive offerings at the master's or professional level). Changed from the category of Postbac-A&S/Other: Postbaccalaureate with Arts & Sciences (other dominant fields) ChangedPostbac-A&S/Other: Postbaccalaureate with Arts & Sciences (other dominant fields)
Enrollment Profile Classification (7 categories) VHU: Very high undergraduate Fall enrollment data show both undergraduate and graduate/professional students, with the latter group accounting for less than 10 percent of FTE* enrollment. Fall 2009 & 2010 = 6% FTE Fall 1999 & 2000 = 4% FTE http://intraweb.stockton.edu/eyos/page.cfm?siteID=54&pageID=2
Undergraduate Profile Classification (9 categories*) FT4/S/HTI: Full-time four-year, selective, higher transfer-in Fall enrollment data show at least 80 percent of undergraduates enrolled full-time at these bachelor’s degree granting institutions. Score data for first-year students indicate that these institutions are selective in admissions (our analysis of first-year students’ test scores places these institutions in roughly the middle two-fifths of baccalaureate institutions). At least 20 percent of entering undergraduates are transfer students. Changed from FT4/MS/HTI: Full-time four-year, more selective, higher transfer-inFT4/MS/HTI: Full-time four-year, more selective, higher transfer-in
Selectivity Methodology Carnegie used the 25 th %ile SAT/ACT because it describes more students (3/4 of first-year students scored above this point) The three groups correspond to 25 th %ile ACT- equivalent scores of less than 18 (inclusive), 18-21 (selective), and greater than 21 (more selective)
Size and Setting Classification (12 categories*) M4/R: Medium four-year, primarily residential Fall enrollment data show FTE enrollment of 3,000–9,999 degree-seeking students at these bachelor’s degree granting institutions. 25-49 percent of degree-seeking undergraduates live on campus
Basic Classification 3 masters institution categories Master's/M: Master's Colleges and Universities (medium programs) Master's/M: Master's Colleges and Universities (medium programs) Institutions were included in these categories if they awarded at least 50 master's degrees in 2008-09, but fewer than 20 doctorates Larger programs—at least 200 degrees awarded Medium programs—100-199 degrees awarded (FY10=120) Small programs—50-99 degrees awarded Changed from Master's/S: Master's Colleges and Universities (smaller programs) ChangedMaster's/S: Master's Colleges and Universities (smaller programs)
