The Carnegie Classification has been the leading framework for recognizing and describing institutional diversity in U.S.
higher education for the past four decades. Starting in 1970, the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education developed a classification
of colleges and universities to support its program of research and policy analysis. Derived from empirical data on colleges
and universities, the Carnegie Classification was originally published in 1973, and subsequently updated in 1976, 1987, 1994,
2000, 2005, and 2010 to reflect changes among colleges and universities. This framework has been widely used in the study
of higher education, both as a way to represent and control for institutional differences, and also in the design of research
studies to ensure adequate representation of sampled institutions, students, or faculty.
