About the CBII Project

College and Beyond II (CBII) is a new data resource for studying the impact and outcomes of higher education. It contains student record and transcript data on bachelor’s-seeking undergraduates enrolled from 2000-2021 at 19 public colleges across seven university systems. In total, CBII contains data on over 1 million students. These data are linked to qualitative data on course content, survey data on long-term life outcomes, National Student Clearinghouse data on educational attainment, and more. College and Beyond II was produced by a team of researchers from the University of Michigan and supported by a grant from The Mellon Foundation.
