Fact Book

As of August of 2023, the Fact Book is gradually being updated with fiscal year 2022-23 information and fall 2023 information as well as catching up with any missing information from the previous year. The most current information is noted at the end of the item title. This practice is a change from the past, but is necessary to allow the Office of Institutional Research (OIR) to accommodate other projects. If you have feedback on this change or if there is a specific item that you need, please contact the Office of Institutional Research.

Members of the Linfield community (faculty, staff, students) may log in to the pages of the Fact Book using their CatNet ID. The most current information included on the page is noted in parentheses to the right of the title. Please alert the Office of Institutional Research to any errors or typos. Updates and corrections that may substantially affect interpretation will be posted on the pages below as needed.

If you share links to the Fact Book with other members of the Linfield community, the best practice is to link to the Fact Book website and cite the item number. Direct links to the underlying SharePoint documents may not open.
