The Higher Education Directory®(HED) is an indispensable reference resource dedicated to facilitating communication within the higher education community.
The data in the Higher Education Directory® database is available in three useful formats and can be tailored to any need.
Licensed data extracts from the Higher Education Directory® are available to approved members of the higher education industry. With customized extracts from our database of over 4,800 institutions, 21,000 accreditations and more than 90,000 administrators we can solve your communications challenges. Graduate admissions, verification of accreditation status, recruitment, announcements and seminars are just a few of the possible uses for this resource.
The online HigherEd Direct™ version of the Higher Education Directory® is a powerful reference tool that allows users to analyze data with a number of filters and sort options to quickly select the exact information they need. HigherEd Direct™ users have immediate access to interim updates and can send emails to individual administrators and/or view an institution’s web page.
The print version of the Higher Education Directory® is our original reference tool. Listing over 4,800 institutions and more than 90,000 administrators, the 1,128 page directory is the perfect solution for the occasional user.
For over three decades, top executives in the higher education industry have trusted the Higher Education Directory® to provide them with the information they need to communicate and analyze. Keeping pace with the dynamic higher education industry, the Higher Education Directory® has become “The Authoritative Source” for information on who’s who at colleges and universities.
The Higher Education Directory® is the only single-source for academic and administrative personnel at accredited, degree-granting colleges and universities. Institutions listed in the Higher Education Directory® are accredited by agencies recognized by the Secretary of Education and/or the Council on Higher Education Accreditation.
With the phrase “consider the source” in mind, we go directly to the source to conduct our annual survey of every eligible college and university in the United States. Thanks to the excellent participation of the members of the higher education community we are able to verify and update our information with a 99% response rate.
Throughout the year, our online editors constantly gather information on new appointments and recent retirements to continue the update processes. Our same high standards for verification, editing and proofing apply to these interim updates.
