The Chronicle of Higher Education reports on a recent survey of more than 440 colleges and universities nationwide, of which more than 40% of private schools and 30% of public institutions reported missing at least one enrollment goal of increased first-year student numbers or tuition revenue for this academic year. Nearly 40% of schools surveyed met both goals, but say the numbers are down from previous years and were adjusted to meet forecasts based upon appropriations, industrial growth and demographic trends in the surrounding region. College officials say that it is nearly impossible to read growth in one year as the beginning of a trend, or a one-time bump which could decline in the following year.
