This report presents detailed information concerning the member institutions of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), an organization which includes 41 privately supported historically black colleges and universities in the United States. Tables, graphs, and narrative are organized into sections on enrollment, admissions, degrees, faculty and staff, student financial aid, college costs, institutional finances, and endowment. Highlights of the data include: enrollment at all UNCF institutions in 1995 was 54,388, 28 percent greater than in 1986; about two-thirds of all UNCF students come from the Southeast; 6,709 bachelors degrees were awarded by UNCF institutions in 1993-94, an increase of 3 percent over the previous year; in Fall, 1995, the average faculty salary at UNCF was $30,658, two-thirds the average at all private four-year colleges; at UNCF colleges, 85 percent of students received some form of financial aid in Fall, 1994; the UNCF average charge for tuition and fees ($5,617) remains nearly 50 percent less than that charged by private colleges nationally; and endowment funds at UNCF colleges increased slightly to $533.7 million.
