Critical Facts about the University of North Carolina System

    To understand and evaluate a university's effectiveness requires a lot of information. But rarely is that information brought together in one place.

    "The State of the State University" by Jenna Ashley Robinson compiles publicly available data about the University of North Carolina system. In an easily readable way, 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's enrollment growth, tuition history, admissions data, and graduation rates. It provides details about student aid, student debt, the ratio of faculty to students, and the ratio of administrators to faculty. It includes information about faculty salaries, state appropriations, and state subsidy of instruction costs.

    The author is Jenna Ashley Robinson, director of outreach for the John W. Pope Center for Higher Education Policy. The Pope Center publishes this paper as part of our continuing effort to spur transparency in higher education. We expect to update the information each year.

    The John W. Pope Center for Higher Education Policy is a nonprofit institute dedicated to excellence in higher education, both nationally and in North Carolina. The report is available in hard copy as well. Additional copies can be ordered by contacting the center at info@popecenter.org.
