The state of UConn in 15 charts

Print More

Today over at the Connecticut Mirror, we looked at how the University of Connecticut has changed in the past 20 to 25 years. A few key bullet points before you head over:

  • UConn increasingly gets its money from tuition and fees, while state funding accounts for a smaller portion of its operating budget.
  • The cost of tuition has increased much faster than the rate of inflation — especially for out-of-state students.
  • Meanwhile, spending has increased — although a shrinking portion of the school’s money is being spent on salaries, wages and fringe benefits. Even so, it is the largest line item.
  • The number of tenure-track faculty per student has decreased, while the number of part-time faculty per students has increased.
