Origin of Kentucky College and University Enrollments. Fall 1988.
Kentucky State Council on Higher Education, Frankfort.
Data on geographic origins of students in Kentucky's public and independent colleges and universities are reported. All higher education institutions, including two-year colleges, four-year colleges, and universities, are included. Tables present information on total and first-time freshman enrollment by county and state of student origin for each institution type and for first-professional enrollments by county and state of origin for state-supported universities. Additional tables contain total enrollment as a percentage of population and first-time freshmen as a percentage of high school graduates by county of origin for both state-supported and independent institutions. Two Kentucky counties were found to provide a major proportion of higher education enrollments, accounting for 31% of resident students. The regional drawing power of institutions is seen in the number of first-time freshmen enrolling in institutions, particularly public community colleges, near their homes. Of the senior public institutions, the University of Louisville and Northern Kentucky University have the highest home and contiguous county proportions. The University of Kentucky and Morehead State University draw most of their first-time freshmen from other than home or contiguous counties. (MSE)
