Higher Education Opportunity Act

The latest reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965--the Higher Education Opportunity Act--requires institutions of higher education to provide various statistics and links publicly. This web page represents IRDS's contribution to these requirements. Many of the required descriptions listed below are satisfied by pointing to the Common Data Set section of the IRDS website and by linking to other LMU websites. New public reporting is housed here until (and if) it becomes part of more regular reporting.
