Enrollment for Fall, 1988 and Finances and Student Aid Year Ending June 30, 1989 at U.S. Catholic Colleges and Universities.
This document presents figures for the fall 1988 enrollment and finances for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1989 at Catholic Colleges and Universities in the United States. Data are based on responses by individual institutions to the Office of Education's National Center for Educational Statistics' annual Integrated Postsecondary Educational Data System survey. Institutions are classified as either Research/Doctoral, Comprehensive, Liberal Arts, or Two-Year. Data for the following enrollment categories are provided: by type of institution; by level; by gender and ethnicity; and by geographic distribution. Financial data in the following categories are provided: tuition and fees, federal grants, private grants, endowment, instruction expenses, research expenses, academic support, student services, institutional support, operation and maintenance, scholarships, and plant debt. Major conclusions are that, in comparison to other independent colleges and universities, Catholic institutions have a higher proportion of comprehensive universities, enroll higher percentages of part-time and women students, enroll lower percentages of Black, Asian and Pacific Islanders, and enroll more Hispanic students (though almost half of these are in three Puerto Rican institutions). Included is a statistical appendix with 24 tables and a list of institutions included in the report. (JB)
