Nettles, Michael T.; Perna, Laura W.; Edelin, Kimberly C.; Robertson, Nancy
This report presents detailed information concerning the member institutions of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), an organization which includes 39 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, endowment, and computer hardware and software. Highlights of the data include: enrollment at all UNCF institutions in 1996 was 54,317, 28 percent greater than in 1986; nearly 95 percent of students attending College Fund member institutions are African American; nearly three-quarters of UNCF students come from the Southeast; member institutions awarded degrees to 7,052 students in 1995-96, an increase of 43 percent over 1989-90; the average faculty salary at UNCF institutions continues to be lower than that of faculty at similar private colleges and universities; more than 90 percent of students received some form of financial aid in Fall; the average cost of attending a College Fund institution in 1995-96 was $12,575, substantially lower than that at all private colleges nationwide; and the total endowment for member institutions in 1995-96 was $635.4 million, almost triple that of 10 years ago. Thirty-two appendices provide tables presenting additional data. (DB)
