Readers with an interest in higher education demographic trends, particularly in STEM disciplines, may wish to check out the 2018 Status Report on Engineering Education, published by the Association for Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU). Funded by the National Science Foundation, this report "examines trends in engineering degrees conferred at national and institutional levels to determine areas of growth among various groups, changes in racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in engineering, and which colleges and universities graduate a larger number of underrepresented groups in specific engineering disciplines." Using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (part of the National Center for Education Statistics), the analysis compared degree completion data for the 2010-2011 academic year to data for the 2015-2016 academic year. Here, visitors may view the report's major findings and download the 122-page report in full or its 22-page section summary. A research, policy, and advocacy organization representing universities in the US, Canada, and Mexico, the APLU describes itself as "North America's oldest higher education association."
