MHEC's 2009 Data Book Released to Legislators, College Leaders, and the General Public

ANNAPOLIS, MD (February 2, 2009) – One of the Maryland Higher Education Commission’s most valuable and anticipated annual publications is being released today.

The 2009 Data Book provides easy-to-access statistics and information about numerous aspects of postsecondary education in Maryland.

The publication contains updated figures about student enrollment, retention and graduation rates, degrees awarded, faculty, revenues and expenditures, tuition and fees, financial aid, and distance learning among many other interesting statistics.

The Data Book has been used by the O’Malley-Brown administration, MHEC Commissioners, legislators, college presidents, vice presidents, deans, faculty, the press and the general public for its precise statistics.

“This is a tremendous publication,” Secretary of Higher Education James E. Lyons, Sr., said. “It is an invaluable source of information to me and I am sure that once again this year, those who make use of the Data Book will agree that it is a great resource.”

To request a copy of the Data Book, contact Kristen Neville at (410) 260-4512. It will also be available on-line at www.mhec.state.md.us by February 10.

The Maryland Higher Education Commission is a 12-member coordinating board responsible for establishing statewide policies for Maryland public and independent colleges and universities and private career schools. It serves as an advocate for more than 326,000 college students in Maryland, for the State and its needs, and for business and industry in Maryland.
