UNCF Statistical Report of the Member Institutions, 1980.
Kirschner, Alan H.
A compilation of the most recent statistical information on the 41 member institutions of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) is presented. All of the institutions are private, accredited, predominantly black colleges and universities offering undergraduate and/or graduate programs. The data are gathered in an annual survey, and presented in tabular form with some narrative analysis. They cover these areas: enrollment (fall 1979 and trends; admissions data; white students; male/female; and geographic distribution); faculty (total; by degrees; and salaries); degrees granted (undergradute and graduate; and majors); and institutional and student finances (student financial aid; average student charges; institutional costs; and endowment). Highlights include these: Total enrollment increased 7.8 percent from fall 1972 to fall 1979, with some decline in the past year; applications and admissions are also increasing. Numbers of faculty declined corresponding to the past year's enrollment decline, but overall in the past eight years, percentage of faculty with earned doctorates has increased from 37.0 to 41.8 percent. Earned degrees granted have increased for the second consecutive year, with curricula restructured to meet newer distribution of job opportunities for black graduates. On the average, 90.2 percent of the students receive financial aid, and in the past year tuition has increased by 11.9 percent, to $1,888 on the average. Endowments continue to be strengthened. (MSE)
