    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This is a diachronic corpus of mission statements, philosophy statements, and purpose statements for community colleges in North Carolina and Florida. Texts date from the mid-1960s to 2020. Texts are indexed to IPEDS unit id.&amp;nbsp;Texts for some years are missing. &amp;quot;OTM&amp;quot; means other than mission (which is typically a statement of purpose but may include statement of goals). Data were retrieved from archived catalogs and archived websites (e.g., Wayback Machine). The highest level of heading was used. For example, if a college published a statement of mission and a statement of purpose, the statement with the most prominent (typically the first) heading was used.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
    <description descriptionType="Other">The genre for some texts is listed as "both". This means the text includes a philosophy statement and a mission statement. This is a shortcoming of the data set and will be corrected in future versions.</description>
