Annual Status Report on Higher Education in Texas. January 1992.
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin.
This report presents a "snapshot" of higher education trends in Texas in 1990-91. An opening letter notes that the state is currently coping with record enrollments, greater competition for state dollars, and the impact of these issues on educational quality. A section on students looks at enrollment, minority enrollment, financial aid and the Texas Academic Skills Program. A section on faculty presents information on English-language proficiency, part-time faculty, teaching load, and salaries. A section on programs lists degrees awarded in areas of critical need: retraining programs for math and science teachers, allied health care, nursing, teacher education, international education and work force training. A section on the educational pipeline from kindergarten through graduate school documents a decline in minority enrollment beginning in grade 9. A section on research reviews the Texas Advanced Research and Technology Programs. Funding is also treated including appropriations, library expenditures and tuitions. Campus buildings and educational facilities are discussed including a facilities audit, space standards, a building quality survey and private development. Institutional access is addressed in light of a lawsuit against the Texas higher education system and telecommunication systems for distance learning. A final section presents information on the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Numerous figures illustrate the report. (JB)
