  • CR Gazaette: "Enrollment losses at Iowa’s public universities mirror national downward trend"

    Lots of combined numbers for the three Regents schools within the article, but the UNI-specific numbers:

    - UNI's enrollment for Fall 2021 is down 3.1% from Fall '20 (total enrollment or undergrad? article simply states enrollment)
    - UNI's in-state enrollment for Fall 2021 is 10,842 (total enrollment or undergrad? article simply states enrollment)
    - UNI reports 92% of undergraduate enrollment is from Iowa

    - Incoming community college transfers to UNI were down 6% last fall and down 11% this fall

    - UNI's first-year undergrad enrollments are up 5% in Fall '21
    - UNI reports 12% of first-year students as multi-racial
    - UNI reports 25% of first-year students as first-generation students

    The decision to reduce enrollment in 05-06 when we were on our way to 20,000 will be the point at which you can say the eventual transition to being the University of Iowa at Cedar Falls started. Just a catastrophic failure of leadership.

    We'll be nothing more than an education, accounting and general business satellite campus within 15 years and the BOR and Legislature will rejoice.

      Yup, unfortunate.

        Not to complain and complain and complain, but UNI has done a terrible job selling its value to students and the state government.

        Now, I don't think we're going to end up a satellite campus. If there were an existing "system" in Iowa, and we were outside it, my concern would be completely different. As it is, there aren't *that* many savings in going the "system" route.

          I think that the education system should be changed by the leadership. Especially the online learning system needs to be improved.
