Student Enrollments in Minnesota Higher Education. 1967-1968 Enrollments. Origin of Students by Residence. Migration of Students.
Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Commission, St. Paul.
The document contains analyses of post-secondary student enrollments in Minnesota during the 1967-1968 academic year, the origin of students in Minnesota higher education institutions by counties of residence, and the migration of students to and from Minnesota for higher education. The data, compiled from institutional enrollment reports submitted to the Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Commission by colleges and universities in the state, revealed that post-secondary enrollments in Minnesota in the fall of 1967 totaled 148,898 students, of whom 89% attended colleges and universities and 11% attended trade or vocational schools. Public institutions enrolled 74% of the post-secondary students, and men comprised 60% or more of the full-time enrollment at most institutions. The residence of students tended to reflect the population pattern of the state: the majority, or 82% of all full-time students were residents of Minnesota, 47% of whom came from the 7-county Twin Cities metropolitan area. The in-migration and out-migration of students seemed to offset one another: less than one fifth of all students came from other states, but the number of Minnesota residents who left the state for higher education was even smaller. The report also contains 48 tables and 5 illustrative figures. (WM)
