CIP Code Project Update

CIP Code Update: Between January and March 2018, an IES representative will send out a Call for Comments” to your institution’s IPEDS Keyholder or Coordinator (typically, this is your Registrar or Institutional Research Officer), in which they can suggest a new CIP code for Medical Humanities and Health Humanities. I am recommending that we each act individually at our institutions this fall to prepare for this opportunity in early 2018:

  • Contact your Keyholder or Coordinator now or soon, let them know about the CIP 2020 update process slated to begin in the first quarter of 2018, and ask them if they will work with you to request a new, unique CIP code for Medical and Health Humanities.

Anyone can make a suggestion for a new CIP code, including baccalaureate, graduate, and professional schools. Degree-granting programs (BA, BS, and certificate) have a direct stake in securing a dedicated code, but all programs can make the suggestion at our individual institutions and hopefully gain a critical mass for consideration. If your program is a minor with the possibility of expanding to a major, having a CIP code for Health and Medical Humanities will be very valuable for institutional planning. I’ll provide more guidance as I learn more during the Call for Comments phase of the update process. In the meantime, contact me, Sarah Berry, (sberry@bellarmine.edu) with questions.
