  • Title: U-CAN:University and College Accountability Network - About U-CAN
    Descriptive info: About U-CAN.. The.. University College Accountability Network (U-CAN).. is designed to offer prospective students and their families concise, Web-based consumer-friendly information about the nation's private, nonprofit colleges and universities in a common format.. It was developed and is maintained by the.. National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU).. Praised.. by admissions counselors, students, policymakers, and consumer groups, U-CAN consists of hundreds of institutional profiles featuring comparable data and links to qualitative campus information.. The profiles are displayed in a common template developed by NAICU and based on consumer feedback.. Through focus groups, students and parents told us the information they most need to make an informed college choice.. Their comments shaped the format and content of the consumer information template, which includes comparable institutional data, and provides many targeted links to the institution's Web site for more detailed information on specific aspects of the institution.. U-CAN is totally free - both to users and to the colleges and universities that choose to participate.. U-CAN profiles also include information identified by policymakers as important for accountability.. Congress and the U.. S.. Department of Education have called for  ...   consumers have easy access to information on net tuition, average loan debt at graduation, and undergraduate class-size for hundreds of colleges.. This information is generally difficult for consumers to find and comes from the U.. Department of Education's IPEDS survey and the Common Data Set.. Consumers also are able to search institutions by a wide array of variables, including tuition, debt at graduation, number of students, graduation rate, city, state, distance from home, affiliation, and more.. And U-CAN's.. "Planning to Go" page.. offers links to key resources on how to prepare for college, find the best fit, and navigate the admissions and financial aid processes.. NAICU created and manages U-CAN in close consultation with the National Association of Independent College and University State Executives, member presidents, and a number of other associations representing independent institutions.. Participation by NAICU member institutions is voluntary, and private colleges do not have to be members of NAICU in order to participate.. U-CAN is one of many consumer information tools available to prospective students and their parents.. More information resources mean better educated consumers and, ultimately, more successful college students.. Updated April 2013..

    Descriptive info: Commonly Asked Questions about U-CAN.. What is U-CAN?.. How many colleges participate?.. What does U-CAN offer?.. Is U-CAN free?.. Does U-CAN have profiles for both private and public institutions?.. Why was U-CAN created?.. What determined U-CAN's content and format?.. Does U-CAN rank institutions?.. Was U-CAN developed to compete with the U.. News rankings?.. How is U-CAN different from U.. News and other commercial college search websites and publications?.. How does U-CAN differ from the U.. Department of Education's College Navigator?.. How does U-CAN differ from the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities "College Portrait" information?.. Why doesn't the U-CAN template include learning outcomes measures?.. How often is the site content updated?.. How is U-CAN data standardized across institutions?.. Can a tool like U-CAN, developed by colleges and universities, be trusted to provide consumers with objective and honest information?.. How does U-CAN get noticed in a world filled with well-financed, well-marketed college selection resources?.. U-CAN is a Web-based resource designed to offer students and families concise, consumer-friendly information on private, nonprofit colleges and universities in a common format.. U-CAN was developed and is managed by the.. U-CAN includes information identified by prospective college students, parents, and policymakers as crucial to making a smart college choice and important for institutional transparency and accountability.. It was the first national consumer information tool developed by colleges and universities themselves.. For the first time, hundreds of colleges and universities across the nation are actively collecting and providing consumer information directly to the public in one central location.. As of March 2013, 849 nonprofit, private colleges and universities from 43 states have signed up to participate in U-CAN.. See our.. U-CAN By the Numbers.. section for more statistics about the initiative.. U-CAN helps to make the college selection process more holistic, and more responsive to the interests and priorities of the individual student and their family.. The college and university profiles provide key statistical data complemented by narrative descriptions and subject-specific links to relevant campus Web pages.. Together, this quantitative and qualitative information gives consumers an opportunity to see what sets each college or university apart in nature, mission, and academic and student life features.. The in-depth information in the college and university profiles covers admissions, enrollment, academics, student demographics, graduation rates, most common fields of study, transfer of credit policy, accreditation, faculty information, class size, tuition and fee trends, price of attendance, financial aid, campus housing, student life, and campus safety.. U-CAN also offers consumers easy access to institution-specific information on net tuition, average loan debt at graduation, and undergraduate class-size for hundreds of colleges.. This information, which comes from the U.. Department of Education's IPEDS survey and the Common Data Set, is often difficult for consumers to find and decipher.. Yes.. All the information on the Web site is available to the public at no cost.. There is also no charge for institutions to participate.. A nonprofit effort, U-CAN does not accept advertising or sponsorships.. U-CAN only provides profiles of private, nonprofit colleges and universities.. (Institutions do not have to be NAICU members to participate.. ) A parallel initiative,.. College Portrait.. , provides similar consumer information on public colleges and universities.. It is sponsored by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU).. A similar effort for two-year colleges, the.. Voluntary Framework of Accountability.. , is under development by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC).. During the past decade consumers, Congress, and the U.. Department of Education increasingly called on colleges and universities to prepare and disseminate more consumer-friendly information individuals might use to evaluate colleges - a goal that NAICU strongly supports.. Today, that interest in more accessible and useful consumer information.. has only grown.. College is a substantial investment, and the nation's  ...   and publications?.. U-CAN offers the following unique mix.. The type of information collected and the design of the college and university profiles were shaped by the focus groups with students and parents.. U-CAN collects the information of most use to college seekers from participating institutions, and then reports it in a reader-friendly format.. The profiles are highly "clickable.. " More than two dozen targeted hyperlinks take students to specific pages of an institution's website.. The links and narrative descriptions complement the profile's statistical data, and provide an opportunity to see what makes each college or university unique.. U-CAN is free.. There is no cost to consumers to access the profiles, and no charge for colleges to participate.. U-CAN is nonproft and accepts no advertising or sponsorships.. U-CAN and College Navigator provide similar search options and institutional data points.. U-CAN only includes private, nonprofit colleges, while College Navigator includes private, public and for-profit colleges and universities.. College Navigator is more data-intense, while U-CAN offers a simplified, visually-appealing design.. Its colorful charts and graphs allow for quick comparisons between institutions, and allow users to get to the information they need more easily.. U-CAN also provides links to targeted sections of college websites, where users can find additional institution-specific information.. How does U-CAN differ from the "College Portrait" information?.. Actually the two services are quite similar.. College Portrait requires participating colleges to provide student learning outcomes, and specifies which measures institutions must use.. While outcome measures that institutions find significant can be included in their profiles, U-CAN does not specify those measures.. NAICU believes there is no single learning outcomes measure - or set of measures - broad-based enough to be used across all of the types of institutions and the academic fields of study that comprise private nonprofit higher education.. This makes it impossible to provide outcomes data with the kind of comparability that is the bedrock of U-CAN.. We do, however, encourage U-CAN institutions to provide consumers with appropriate assessment, outcomes, and success measures through links to that sort of information on their institutional Web pages.. Data provided by participating colleges and universities are updated annually.. The most recent update was completed in February 2013.. The next update will began in December 2013, and all profiles updated for 2014 will be posted to the U-CAN site in late February 2014.. Since it is important to have comparability across U-CAN profiles, participating institutions are asked to follow guidelines regarding the specific year and source for data elements.. When consumers compare U-CAN profiles for various institutions, it is critical that they be able to view data from the same year.. By clicking on the "?" buttons throughout an institution's profile, consumers can view drop-down boxes with details on the data sources used.. An extensive and detailed set of directions for institutions' use in entering their data also helps assure comparability.. If consumers, Congress, and the administration were to decide that the information on U-CAN is self-serving and of little value, the likely alternative well might be new federal reporting mandates.. It is in the enlightened self-interest of colleges and universities to provide accurate information.. Among the statistics reported on U-CAN are list price, five-year tuition trends, and average loan debt at graduation - figures that, at their best, are hardly self-serving.. Some 2.. 6 million individuals have visited the U-CAN site through early 2013.. NAICU coordinates an ambitious and ongoing grassroots communication effort that encourages participating institutions to reach out to local high schools, parents, news media, and community groups.. U-CAN is also visible through online media, including targeted ads on Google and Facebook, and a presence on Wikipedia and social network sites.. Basically, we've harnessed the very powerful communications tool of word-of-mouth.. As those who visit the U-CAN site find it useful, they tell others, and traffic to the site continues to grow..

    Descriptive info: America s 1,600 private colleges and universities are.. DIVERSE.. in their depth and variety in their students, mission, academic offerings, and tuition levels.. America s 1,600 private, nonprofit colleges and universities enroll some 3.. 7 million students who are pursing degrees in nearly 1,000 fields of study.. The ethnic and racial diversity across private four-year colleges and universities is comparable to students enrolled at public four-year universities.. Regardless of socio-economic background and academic preparation, most students are as likely to earn their bachelor s degree in four years at a private college or university as they are in six years at a public institution.. AFFORDABLE.. as a result of generous financial aid programs, which often include sizeable grants from the institutions own funds.. And in today s economy, more than ever, private colleges are working to contain costs, improve efficiency, and ensure that students graduate on time all while keeping tuition as low as possible without compromising educational quality.. Finances need not be a barrier to a private college education for any student.. Highly.. PERSONAL.. experiences marked by faculty who care about students as individuals; a wide array of counseling and guidance services; and a warm community of students, faculty, and staff who respect and support each other.. Students at private, nonprofit colleges and universities typically enjoy a lower student-to-faculty ratio meaning smaller classes than at many state colleges and universities.. Nearly 30 percent of four-year private colleges and universities have a total undergraduate enrollment of fewer than 1,000 students..
