IPEDS' College Navigator is geared towards prospective students, rather than employees, but it has in-depth information on an institution that is beneficial for prospective employees. The larger National Center for Education Statistics site has a variety of information that may also be useful to you.
Research employers before you send in your application and before you are called in for an interview.
To search for an institution through ABI/Inform, you can follow the steps under the Researching a Company tab. You will not find as much information in Hoover's and may want to do an additional search at the Department of Education's IPEDS site.
Follow these steps to search for an institution at IPEDS.
The institution may have several campuses, so you may receive many results. I'm interested in Pennsylvania's main campus, so I'm going to chose the second result.
On the final page, expand the tabs to learn more about the institution, such as the demographics, cost of attendance, degree programs, and graduation rates.
