OLYMPIA—A wealth of information about the state’s higher education system and issues can be found in the Higher Education Coordinating Board’s 2011 edition of Key Facts about Higher Education in Washington.
The report, which the HECB has produced since 2002, is available on the agency website at www.hecb.wa.gov/keyfacts. The 114-page document can be downloaded in separate chapters or as one large file.
Key Facts provides basic information about the state’s higher education system, including institutions, enrollment figures, and budget information. It also provides comparisons with other states on important statistics, offers information showing how the state benefits from higher education, and provides data on some of the current challenges facing higher education in Washington.
