Stapleton, Laura; Ludwig, Meredith J.
The 1989-90 report of enrollments at public, four-year colleges and universities reports data on 552 institutions. The data for the report are from the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grand Colleges (NASULGC) annual survey which in 1989 drew a 96 percent response rate. Major findings noted are: that enrollments increased by 2 percent; that full-time student enrollment grew by 2.2 percent while part-time enrollment grew by 1.5 percent; that the number of first-time freshmen decreased by 1.5 percent; and that enrollments at public, historically black colleges and universities increased by 4.9 percent. The data are presented in three tables. The first shows AASCU respondents' total full-time, part-time and grand total enrollments for individual institutions grouped by state. The second table shows NASULGC respondents' total full-time, part-time and grand total enrollments for individual institutions grouped by state. The third table shows nonaffiliated respondents' total full-time, part-time and grand total enrollments for individual institutions grouped by state. (JB)
