how effective is the Carnegie Classification at characterizing the institution you have selected?
Starting in 1970, the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education developed the Carnegie Classification of colleges and universities to support its program of research and policy analysis. It is widely considered the leading framework for recognizing and describing the diverse types of institutions in U.S. higher education over the past four decades.
Select an institution of higher education and analyze its Carnegie Classification within the historic and social context of that institution’s programs, profile, size, and setting. Review the institution’s mission from its website and evaluate its mission. Based on that mission, how effective is the Carnegie Classification at characterizing the institution you have selected?
