Welcome to the ninth annual Fact Book of the University ofTennessee, Knoxville. This year's edition includes three new pages with data about enrollments by race and sex, and a fourth page about the 21st Century Campaign. The yearly production of the Fact Book serves as a culmination of the work conducted by the Office oflnstitutional Research and Assessment and demonstrates the diversity ofthe data we use. It is a source of satisfaction to me that it has become a standard resource for the university community.
I would like to acknowledge the many offices and individuals on the UTK campus who provide data for the Fact Book. Their help makes this truly a cooperative effort. Within the Office oflnstitutional Research and Assessment, almost every staff member makes a contribution to the editorial
