Higher education in America’s metropolitan areas
A Statistical Profile
This study measures the higher education capacity of America’s 50 largest metropolitan areas in students enrolled, degrees awarded, and college and university finances. (A separate report highlights Atlanta's place in this national higher ed landscape.)
The data here provide a comparative view of the collective resources available to metro regions across the nation from their local colleges and universities. Leveraging these resources is key to promoting economic prosperity, educating a skilled workforce, advancing scientific discovery, expanding the arts and improving quality of life. ARCHE hopes the report encourages government, business and civic leaders to work more closely with institutions of higher education in their metro regions.
