Berkeley, California—It’s hard to imagine any school in America that has an enrollment as high as UC Berkeley.
The university’s population of 1.4 million students has been growing at a compound annual rate of almost 4 percent over the past decade, and it is projected to have the highest percentage of new students in the country by 2020.
But as technology companies such as Apple and Amazon have created thousands of jobs and the American economy has grown more sophisticated, the school’s enrollment has been dropping, with fewer than 600 students enrolled in fall 2018.
UC Berkeley’s enrollment is still well above the national average, but its numbers are trending downward.
According to the U.S. Department of Education’s 2018 Student Enrollment Report, the University of California at Berkeley had 4,093 students enrolled at the end of fall 2018, down from 5,965 in 2020.
That year, the university had a student-to-faculty ratio of 1:12, with 1.25 percent of UC Berkeley faculty being students.
At the same time, the number of faculty jobs that were created increased by 3.5 percent, bringing the number at the school to 13,834.
As of this month, the faculty job market was at a five-year high of 2.7 percent.
UC has had a population of more than 1 million since its founding in 1847, and its population has grown by more than 50 percent in the past 30 years.
Yet the university has faced its share of problems over the years.
For example, during the recession, UC administrators decided to eliminate the tuition for the first time in history, leading to a large drop in enrollment, according to the Associated Press.
A recent state audit found that the university was spending $7 million annually on research grants, but the AP reported that UC is spending $10 million on conferences and meetings that have nothing to do with academic research.
And the school has struggled to attract students from the West Coast, which has a lower graduation rate than the rest of the country.
But the students who are leaving the school for other universities are also leaving in droves, according a recent study from the University at Buffalo.
About two-thirds of students who enrolled at UC during the last academic year had already dropped out by the time the next academic year began, according the study.
The dropout rate at UC is one of the highest in the U to one-third of its enrollment.
In the same period last year, just a third of students enrolled were graduating.
The problem is especially severe for students from Asian and minority communities.
According the AP, the college’s Asian and African American students make up about one-quarter of the campus population.
In 2019, only 10 percent of Asian students at UC were enrolled.
The campus is also struggling with its graduation rate.
According a 2015 report from the American Association of University Professors, about 75 percent of graduating UC students in 2020 will have failed to complete their degree.
According it, the graduation rate for Asian American students is more than six times higher than the rate for white students.
The report also noted that the average amount of time it took to graduate at UC for Asian students is 12.8 years compared to 12.1 years for white graduates.
The study also noted the campus is still struggling to attract black and Latino students.
About one-fourth of students at the UC campus in 2019 were black and 42 percent were Latino.
Black students account for 13.4 percent of the student body, and Latino student populations are 16.4 and 19.4, respectively.
“There is a lot of racial disparity in the enrollment of the University,” the report stated.
“Black and Latino undergraduates are underrepresented in the faculty and staff of the university, with a median age of 28 and 26 years respectively.
This is the largest difference between the black and Hispanic undergraduate population of the UC system.”
But the problem doesn’t stop there.
According of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, the median student loan balance for black and white students is $30,000 and $38,000, respectively, compared to $14,000 for white and $20,000 each for Latino and Asian students.
And because the University’s financial aid office has a disproportionate number of black and Asian applicants, UC’s student loan payments have risen at a higher rate than other colleges in the United States.
