PBA Grand Map: linking department-related concepts
- The PBA "grand map" is designed to link together department level data on a variety of topics (majors, degrees,
course teaching activity, faculty and staff counts, finances, research funding, etc.) from a variety of sources
(SIS, PeopleSoft HR and Finance, OCG sponsored research reports, etc.).
- Doing this well requires a consistent and documented approach to linking together the various ways departments are identified in
these data sources (majors codes, course subjects, PeopleSoft department codes, etc.). The concept of a department is not
the same in each source, so decisions must be made about what constitutes a "department" for our analytical purposes.
We've called the resulting units "PBA Departments."
- Our focus has been on "academic departments" -- those that have majors, teach courses, and/or do research. We identify other
nonacademic areas in the map (e.g., Vice Chancellor for Administration) but do not finely discriminate the departments within them.
- The following links provide lists and additional details:
- PBA departments and items linked to them
(major codes, course subjects, PeopleSoft departments, etc.)
- Approved degree programs* and detail on associated majors
- SIS major codes and detail on enrollment, admissions, and approved degree programs
- SIS course subjects and detail on PBA departments, student credit hours and
sections taught, and CIP codes
Searchable list of Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) codes, with descriptions.
CIPs are used in many PBA analyses for federal and state reporting and for comparisons to peer institutions.
- Degree and enrollment counts, by major, degree type, and fiscal year
- Fall census enrollments by college, A&S division, PBA department, and major
- Recency of grand map data sources
