The Truth About Women's Colleges
In the 1960's, there were more than 200 women's colleges in the U.S. Now there are fewer than 50.

However, this assumption discounts the fact that the face of higher education has changed dramatically for all institutions. This report provides ten-year trends in enrollment, retention and revenue at women's colleges versus private coeducational colleges.
