For Question 23: Doctor's Degrees awarded there are two potential sources for this data. 1. The Graduation Summary reports from the Oregon State Institutional Research Office or the Integrated Post Secondary Education Data System (IPEDS). It is important to include both the research doctoral degrees and the professional practice degrees.

Formula for determining the answer to this question:
1.  (From Page 1 of the OSU Graduation Summary reports) First Professional Practice Degree + Doctorate = Doctorate Degrees awarded for ACRL

2.Alternatively, one can get this answer  from the IPEDS site: Look up institution by name site  - input Oregon State - Look at Completions then combine First Professional Practice Degree + Doctorate = Doctorate Degrees awarded for ACRL
