Looking to find data for table...
I'm building a large resume system for our department at our University, and am looking to see if I can find data to fill one of the tables - tb_school. In this table, we're going to compile a list of all the Universities our professors have studied, taught, and guest-lectured at; however, to save on data entry costs, I'm trying to find a pre-built table of the major universities/schools in the US. Any ideas? The format is MySQL, but if it is in other formats, I can convert it.

Check out The Chronicle for Higher Education (http://chronicle.com/). They might have a master list of universities they would share. Also, check with the local government agencies - they most likely have these lists. I knew someone who used to work for the State Council of Higher Education in Virginia (http://www.schev.edu) and they had databases of every university and community college in the state with more information than you could ever possibly want, so they also might be able to provide a simple list for you (they might even have stuff like that on their website).
