Accredited Higher Education Institutions in 1984-85. OERI Bulletin.
Center for Statistics (ED/OERI), Washington, DC.
The U.S. Department of Education Center for Statistics annually collects data through its Survey of Institutional Characteristics of Colleges and Unversities as part of the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) program. This survey establishes the universe of institutions for all surveys in HEGIS and provides a common base for coding, trend analysis, and cross-survey data studies. A classification of higher education institutions is provided. Seven tables provide data on: the number of institutions of higher education in the HEGIS universe with additions and deletions, by control and type; institutions of higher education, by control and type (old classification); institutions of higher education, by control and type (new classification); institutions of higher education, by type and state; public institutions of higher education, by type and state; private institutions of higher education, by type and state; institutions of higher education accredited by individual accrediting agencies, by control and type; and institutions of higher education accredited by individual accrediting agencies, by control and type. All statistics include the 50 states and the the District of Columbia. In the 1984-85 school year, 3,331 higher education institutions and their branches had accreditation, an increase of 47 institutions over the previous year. Since 1977-78, the number of schools in HEGIS has shown a net increase of 236 schools. (SM)
