Broyles, Susan G.
This directory lists all postsecondary institutions in the United States and its outlying areas known to exist as of April 15, 1990. Data were obtained from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System "Institutional Characteristics" survey for 1989-90. Introductory tables in both volumes provide summary information and in both volumes institutions are listed in the main body alphabetically by state. The information presented for each institution includes its name, address, telephone number, 1988 fall enrollment, tuition and fees, and room and board charges for the 1989-90 academic year. Also included are type of control, highest offering (degree or length of time), types of programs offered, and recognized accreditations. Both volumes contain two appendixes listing changes in institutions of higher education (institutions added, deleted, no longer accredited, with name changes, etc.) for 1988-89 and 1989-90. Also appended in both volumes is a list of accrediting bodies recognized by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education. (DB)
