Kinnick, Mary K.; Ricks, Mary F.
Two surveys of urban public universities, conducted in 1978 and 1987, provide a rich database for analyzing and explaining change in these institutions over a 10-year period. Continuing an analysis of trends and conditions begun in 1987, data from a sample of urban universities are compared to those for higher education in general. Local demographic data an economic conditions are examined as possible causes of change or stability over the 10-year period. Results are discussed as they relate to access, enrollments, evening and weekend programs, minority participation, tuition and fees, graduate programs, graduate degrees, doctoral programs, and expenditures for research. Contains 12 references. (Author/KM)
