Yes, the Excel version has some dates that were not updated. It will be reuploaded soon. However, if you are already using it, all Fall information should be for 2019.

The instructions for Section I on the Excel version state “Please report the number of instructional faculty members in each category for Fall 2018.”


The Word version, at least, states 2019. I assume the Excel should also read 2019?

Good morning,

The 2019-2020 Common Data Set Template is available on the Common Data Set Initiative Website: The template is available in RTF, Excel, PDF, and HTML.

We would like to thank you for your patience each year, and would like you to know that we are aware that many of you would like to receive the template earlier in the fall. However, creating the template is a joint effort across several organizations. For this reason, it may not be possible to publish the CDS earlier than our current target period of mid-October to the end of October. Nevertheless, the partners will work together this off-season to identify ways to improve the CDS development and delivery process.

Thank you,

Ashley Robinson-Spann
