Information on financial assistance covers tuition and fees, sources of support, and numbers of needy students. A section on outcomes presents data on degrees by institution and program area, proportion of degrees earned by females, and number of degrees earned by various ethnic groups. Statistics on state appropriations, total revenues, revenue trends, and expenditures are reported. Concerning staff, data are recorded for numbers of full-time faculty analyzed by race, tenure status, gender, and salary.
