The State of the State University: Critical Facts about the University of North Carolina System. Pope Center Series on Higher Education
Robinson, Jenna Ashley
John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy
To understand and evaluate a university's effectiveness requires a lot of information. But rarely is that information brought together in one place. This report compiles publicly available data about the University of North Carolina system. It illustrates key characteristics of the 16 campuses and how they have changed over the past decade. This information will be useful for students and parents, the public, policy-makers, university administrators, and faculty. This report shows, through graphs and tables, the University of North Carolina system's enrollment growth, tuition history, admissions data, and graduation rates. It provides information on student aid, student debt, the ratio of faculty to students, and the ratio of administrators to faculty. It includes facts about faculty salaries, state appropriations, and state subsidy of instruction costs. The Pope Center publishes this paper as part of their continuing effort to spur transparency in higher education.
