1990 Statistical Report.
Fordyce, Hugh R.; Kirschner, Alan H.
This report presents detailed information concerning the member institutions of the United Negro College Fund, comprising 41 historically black colleges and universities in the United States. Data are organized within the categories of enrollment, admissions, faculty and staff, degrees, student financial aid, college costs, institutional finances, and endowment. The data indicate that enrollments have increased by 16% since 1986. The enrollment of women has grown at a faster rate than that of men. Although about two-thirds of all undergraduate students received Pell Grants during 1988-89, the amount of student aid derived from this source accounted for only 25% of all student financial aid. Various loan programs accounted for nearly 40% of student aid dollars in 1988-89. Business continued as the most popular major for bachelor's degree recipients. Degrees in business exceeded those in the second most popular field, education, by a margin of nearly four to one. Faculty salaries trail those found at other private 4-year colleges. (JDD)
