The present publication is the 87th issue of the annual statistical report by the Office of Education on land-grant colleges and universities. The first issue presented data for the academic year 1869-70; this issue carries the series through 1955-56. The series is distinguished, first, by its long history of 87 years, and second, by the scope of its information regarding the individual colleges sand universities in the land-grant group. The present publication, lists individual institutions by State, without regard to color of the majority of the students in each institution. In the summary tables, which give data for all 69 land grant institutions as a group, the traditional, separation of data for the 17 institutions attended predominantly by Negroes has been discontinued. As in the previous year's bulletin, data from land-grant institutions on enrollments, faculty, and degrees are compared with corresponding data from all institutions of higher education and from all 4-year institutions. Financial data on land-grant colleges and universities are included in the present bulletin; but comparison of these data with data from all institutions and from the 4-year institutions was not possible, because of incomplete tabulation of financial data from the latter groups at the present time. The data on degrees conferred are considered both mote accurate and more adequate than in previous. (Contains 32 tables and 8 footnotes.) [This bulletin was prepared under the direction of Mabel C. Rice in consultation with Lloyd E. Blauch. Best copy available has been provided.]
