The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Systestem (IPEDS) is a web based system managed by the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES).  The NCES is a branch of the US Department of Education.  "IPEDS data are submitted at the aggregate-level from postsecondary institutions and do not have student-level information. Institutions submit data through 12 interrelated survey components about 6 general higher education topics in 3 collection cycles." (https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/use-the-data/survey-components)
