The Chronicle's annual Almanac of Higher Education brings context to data with detailed tables and analysis on faculty, students, finance, and all 50 states. Get a sense of how higher education is changing, and find the figures you need to inform decisions on your campus. Among 120 tables, you will find the usual ones on faculty salaries and fastest-growing colleges, as well as new ones on cumulative student-loan debt, starting salaries for recent graduates, diversity at primarily white institutions led by African-American presidents, and major gifts given to institutions by their own presidents or professors.
