Ministry of Colleges and Universities. 1977-78 Statistical Summary.
Ontario Ministry of Colleges and Universities, Toronto.
A statistical summary of enrollment at Ontario universities in 1977-78 is presented. The summary surveys data on students at all levels, from first year to doctoral, data on staff by institution (including salaries), and financial data listing support by institution, sources of revenue, and student assistance available. Among findings were that enrollment during the period declined by less than two percent, while the number of degrees awarded increased by about five percent. Colleges of applied art and technology experienced a five percent increase in postsecondary program enrollment and a 24 percent increase in non-postsecondary areas (including occupational/training programs and general interest courses). Other findings showed that operating grants distributed to the universities and colleges of applied arts and technology increased by more than eight percent to a total of $960 million. An additional $69 million was distributed to students in the form of Ontario Student Assistance Program grants. (Author/PHR)
