Preface and Acknowledgments
The purpose of the Digest is to provide summary information concerning the various activities of the University System and reliable statistical data over time. Users needing more specific information are directed to the original sources cited on each page. The choice of contents and the accuracy of translation from the original documents are the responsibility of the editors.
We have used the most current data available. However, data get old quickly. We also invite you to visit our web pages at http://www.usg.edu/usg_stats/ and http://www.usg.edu/admin/sra/ for more current information.
We thank System Office staff members who provided information on their respective areas. Special appreciation is expressed to Tina Knoedler of TypeSolutions Incorporated, who designed the cover art, John Millsaps, who arranged for printing and publication, and Nicola Juricak who edited several versions of this document.
You are encouraged to offer suggestions for future editions of the Digest.
