Division III Institutional Performance Program (IPP)

The IPP consolidates data institutions have already submitted into a user-friendly format with reporting and benchmarking functionality.  It provides institutions and conference better visibility into the data with the hope it will facilitate better informed decisions and strategic planning on campuses and at the conference level. Click here for an overview of the IPP.

Why should I use the IPP?

  • There’s no extra work on your end. The data annually submitted to the NCAA is already in the system.
  • A secured, powerful platform provides information you can rely on.
  • The peer comparison feature lets you compare your institution or conference, privately, in all data categories to existing peers (for example, conference and all Division III) and to other peer groups of your own choosing.

How do I access the IPP?

You must have an account (user ID and password) and proper access.  If you do, click here. If you’re on a campus and an account doesn’t already exist, please contact your SSO administrator (typically the Director of Athletics).  They can establish your account and assign you access to the IPP.  Conference Commissioners can log into SSO and assign access to themselves. Once access has been assigned and you’ve logged in, click the IPP icon.

Where does the data come from?

  1. Sports Sponsorship and Demographics Form (due August 1st): Required submission of information for student-athletes, athletics administrators and coaches.
  2. Graduation Rates Data Collection System (due June 1st): Required submission of student-body information and voluntary submission of student-athlete information.
  3. NCAA Financial Reporting System (due January 15th): Voluntary submission of athletics finance information.

All three systems are available to campus-levelusers with proper access here.

How can the IPP help me?

  • ACADEMICS: Review graduation rates data, including trends by gender, race/ethnicity and sport.  Additional information about graduation rates can be found here.
  • STUDENTS:  View student-athlete data and compare their characteristics with those at peer institutions and conferences; view how student-athletes compare with the entire undergraduate population in regard to gender and reported ethnicity/racial groups; compare sports sponsorship with peer institutions and conferences.  Additional information about the diversity of student-athletes can be found here.
  • LEADERSHIP: See breakdown of assistant and head coaches and administrators by gender, sport and race/ethnicity and compare their characteristics with peer groups, your conference and other conferences.  Additional information about the diversity of coaches and athletics administrators can be found here.
  • FINANCIAL: View how expenses are trending; research compensation data for head and assistant coaches and administrators to compare against peer groups; and better understand the expense implications of adding a sport(s).  Additional information about the finances of intercollegiate athletics can be found here.
