Things To Do
  1. Work on articles that need cleanup.
  2. Create a page for every university and college and add {{infobox University}} for it. See the missing list for those institutions still awaiting articles.
  3. Place {{WikiProject Higher education}} on every related talk page.
  4. Combat boosterism wherever it appears
  5. Ensure all articles, including Featured articles, are consistent with the article guidelines.


WikiProject Higher education aims to improve the coverage of universities and colleges on Wikipedia. Please feel free to join our project by adding your name at the List of participants and including this page on your watchlist.

About the projectEdit

GoalsEdit

  • Standardize the structure and content of all college and university articles
  • Ensure colleges' and universities' articles comply with Wikipedia's five pillars
  • Improve the coverage of higher education, propelling articles to featured status
  • Serve as the central hub for all discussions and information related to higher education coverage
  • Add missing and requested higher education articles

Task forces and sub-projectsEdit

Task forces are meant to provide centralized information and a discussion area for topics that have a sufficiently large scope, but that would not benefit from having a separate WikiProject with all of the additional work that would involve. Currently, the only task force is Student Affairs task force.

Geographic areas, athletic conferences, or individual institutions with multiple pages and the interest of several active Wikipedians may become the subject of a sub-project. Propose the new project on the WikiProject Higher education talk page or at the WikiProject Council to make sure there is enough interest before starting a new project. See the related projects section for examples.

Showcase articlesEdit

Here are some high-quality examples of articles within this project's scope:

College Navigator external linkEdit

For United States institutions, the Department of Education presents data at its College Navigator. You can link to a college's page by finding its IPEDS ID at nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator (not the OPE ID) and using the following template.

{{College-navigator|<id>}}

For example, Valparaiso University's ID is 152600. Therefore, this template produces

Valparaiso University at College Navigator, a tool from the National Center for Education Statistics

You can use an optional second parameter to specify a name other than the title of the Wikipedia page that calls the template.

{{College-navigator|152600|Valparaiso University (Indiana)}}

produces:

Valparaiso University (Indiana) at College Navigator, a tool from the National Center for Education Statistics
