The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching sponsors Elective Classifications for those institutions that have made extraordinary commitments to their public purpose. The Elective Classifications are managed on behalf of the Carnegie Foundation by an Elective Classification Central Office. In addition to the Elective Classifications, the Carnegie Foundation also provides its all-inclusive Universal (Basic) Classification based on secondary analysis of existing national data.
