Office of Institutional Research fact books and compiled statistics

 Collection
Identifier: 12.100-FactBook

Scope and Contents

This collection of periodicals consists of reports published by the Office of Institutional Research and later Enrollment Management. They provide statistical data about the university, including enrollment by college, gender, and ethnicity. Some years also include data about faculty, staff, finance, and facilities. They began as a student profile that offered basic information about enrollment statistics. They were published irregularly until 1983-84 when the publication expanded and became the Student Profile and University Fact Book. From 1988-2001, they also published a pamphlet called Southwest Texas At-a-glance Tables & Statistics. Beginning in 2006, the factbook changed formats when Enrollment Management took over the publication. The content changed to provide summary data about enrollment, and the name became Enrollment Highlights. Materials are arranged chronologically within the two periodicals.

Detailed statistical data is available online through the Office Institutional Research.
