This volume provides comparative data highlighting significant trends affecting colleges and universities in 14 southern states--Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. Trends identified include: a regional high growth rate; educational attainment continuing below the national average; financially strained colleges; and increased financial burdens on students. Data cover demographics, school enrollments, high school graduates, government revenues and expenditures, college enrollments, student characteristics, degrees granted, tuition and fees, student financial aid, faculty and administrator profiles and salaries, and college and university revenues and expenditures. Also included are data on employment trends, state general fund appropriations, and migration of first-time freshmen. The more than 100 data tables and graphs are grouped according to: population and economy; enrollment; degrees; tuition and student aid; faculty and administrators; and state revenues and expenditures. A state profile section provides an overview of selected data for the region and for individual states. Also included is a list of Southern Regional Education Board public colleges and universities organized by institutional category (number and types of degrees granted, breadth of programs offered, and distribution of degrees across program areas) and a list of the state higher education agencies.
