Declining Student Population?

The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education just released a demographic study of college-age students in the near future. The results are pretty interesting. In brief, there are significant shifts of student populations. The Northeast looks to see a declining student population while we here in Virginia look to have what the study terms "manageable growth". Also noteworthy of note is the rapid expansion of the number of Latino students, both nationally and in Virginia.

A brief collection of graphs summarizes the report here.
