Research Policy Analysis and Coordination
A degree-granting institution of higher education or association.
The "Type" indicator is used to distinguish among government-controlled (i.e."Public"), non-profit (i.e "Private”), and for-profit institutions of higher education. The California State University and, where applicable, its campus specific auxiliaries/foundations are tracked in location-specific merged sponsor codes (e.g. CSU San Marcus and its Auxiliary share the same sponsor code). UC campuses are excluded and are tracked in their own category.
