Statewide Enrollment Patterns: Higher Educational Opportunities in Indiana.
Waggaman, John S.
Enrollment in institutions of higher education in Indiana has been leveling off since 1970. This is mainly due to: (1) an expansion of technical and vocational education programs; (2) increases in tuition; (3) reduced federal support and high interest rates on borrowed money; (4) a general disillusionment with a college education on the part of the young; and (5) fear of campus riots on the part of the parents. The overall effect may be a diminution in the number of 18-year-olds enrolled in Indiana's public and private colleges and universities. This report discusses and presents tabular information on: (1) statewide enrollment trends as related to births in the years of 1944 through 1952; (2) institutional trends between 1967 and 1970 in (a) public, (b) private liberal arts, (c) special private, and (d) other institutions of higher education; (3) new policy developments affecting enrollment; and (4) enrollment projections.
