UTD Profile

The University Profile provides a concise "snapshot" of The University of Texas at Dallas. 


VSA College Portrait

The Voluntary System of Accountability (VSA) communicates information on the undergraduate student experience through a common web reporting template, the College Portrait. The VSA is designed to help institutions demonstrate accountability and stewardship to the public, measure educational outcomes to identify effective educational practices, and assemble information that is accessible, understandable, and comparable.   Please go to VSA College Portrait to view UTD's portrait.


Common Data Set

The Common Data Set Initiative (CDS) is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by The College Board, Peterson's - a Thomson Learning Company, U.S. News & World Report, and Wintergreen/ Orchard House.  The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.  For more information about the Common Data Set Initiative, please go to  Please go to the Common Data Set page to view UTD's report.
