CIP CODE UPDATE PROJECT REPORT

From CIP Project Chair Sarah Berry: “Thanks to all who worked with their institutional IPEDS representative to submit a survey request for a Medical Humanities and Health Humanities CIP code.
We have confirmation that 5 surveys were submitted (Centre C., Bellarmine U., Hiram C., Misericordia U., and Baker U.) Several others of you let me know that you had forwarded the request and prepared text to your Keyholder or Coordinator, and we hope that some of them indeed submitted—the more requests from different institutions, the better.
The IPEDS committee will meet in June to review CIP survey results. I’ll send out updates to this group as info becomes available.
Thanks again for your participation over the past year. The CIP update occurs only every four to eight years, so—fingers crossed that we’ll soon have a code boosting our stature as a field and that our programs will have new statistical tools available to everyone, from students and program chairs to researchers and administrators.”
From the HHC to Sarah, thank you for spearheading this initiative.
