Summary

This is the second of a series of planning reports on Minnesota higher education; the first was entitled A PHILOSOPHY FOR MINNESOTA HIGHER EDUCATION and the third will deal with student enrollment in 1967-68. This study of population trends and projections and past enrollment trends and the needs of the individual and society has provided the basis for projecting higher education enrollments of 234,200 for 1980 and 271,400 for 2000. These forecasts compare with the 1967 enrollment of 131,361 which includes a regular enrollment of 117,106 in colleges and universities and an enrollment of 14,255 in public and private vocational schools. Extension students are not included in the projections or the 1967 enrollment total. Among other findings, it was learned that: the population in Minnesota, along with that of the nation, is increasing rapidly; persons under 22 have become a larger proportion of Minnesota's population; the number of high school graduates is increasing; enrollment in colleges and universities was two and one third times greater in 1967 than in 1956; enrollment in vocational schools increased 300% since 1961. The largest enrollment increases occurred at the lower division level and the greatest proportionate enrollment increase occurred at the postgraduate level. These trends are expected to continue. The proportion of women enrolled in colleges and universities increased. Figures and tables contain all the data, most of which were furnished by the institutions and systems of higher education in Minnesota. (JS)
