Data Journal

The Data Journal provides a statistical snapshot of the University System of Maryland (USM), and serves as a source of comparative information over time. In short, it is a historic document portraying concisely and incisively data on admissions, enrollment, financial aid/pricing, retention and graduation, degrees, faculty and staff, and other miscellaneous information about the thirteen institutions within the USM, 11 degree-granting and two research institutes. Please contact Chad Muntz, Director of Institutional Research, for additional information.
