Enrollment  Statistics

Information on the number of students enrolled disaggregated by year, sex, level (undergraduate and postgraduate), classification (fresh, sophomore, junior and senior), type of program (regular, continuing,  distance and summer) and college is useful for students, staff, and community at large. Such information is important for proper  utilization of the scarce resources, administration and to deliver  quality education. As depicted in Fig. 1, the university-wide student  enrollment significantly increased until 2014/15 and then slightly  decreased from 2015/16 onwards. Of the total (n=29,848) students  registered in 2016/17, 78%were in STEM oriented fields whereas the  remaining 22% were registered in the field of social sciences and  related disciplines.

Fig.2 presents the percentage of student enrolled disaggregated by  gender for the last seven years. Overall, the proportion of male students enrolled was considerably greater than the proportion female students  enrolled in the given period.

Alternatively, the student registration statistics by level and classification  is depicted in Figs. 3 and Fig. 4 respectively. It can be seen that the
number of undergraduate students was by far greater than the number of  postgraduate students in the whole period (Fig. 3). Likewise, the number of specialist/ master’s degree students registered at HU was markedly  greater than the number of doctorate degree students in the given time  frame (Fig. 4). Apart from this, student enrollment statistics by type of  program is shown on Fig.5.

5. Undergraduate Attrition 

Attrition is defined as the percentage of a commencing cohort that has  not completed and subsequently not continues in the next semester or  year. This possibly happens due to poor academic performance,  disruption due to illnesses, withdrawal due to dissatisfaction with the  program of the study, family responsibilities, financial constraints, scheduling problem and other related reasons. Directly and/or  indirectly, attrition can result in financial losses (for both learners and institutions) and lower the reputation of the university. In line with this, the line graph (Fig. 6) compares the attrition rate of male and female students disaggregated by semester for HU during the 2015/16-2016/17 academic years.

fig6

It can be clearly seen that a large proportion of the regular undergraduate students who drop out is female students in the given time frame. In the case of male students, the attrition percentage gradually increased till Semester II of 2015/16 and considerably decreased to 0.37% in the first Semester of 2016/17. On the other hand, the attrition rate for female students increased markedly and reached a peak of 3.70% in semester I of 2016/17. Therfore, Haramaya University should pay a special attention to reduce attrition of female  students in particular.
6. Graduation Statistics
The line graph (Fig. 7) compares the number of male and female  graduates from HU from 1956/57 to 2015/16. Overall, it can be seen that male graduates were far higher than female graduates throughout  the whole time frame. To this end, the graph exhibits that the total number of graduates increased exponentially over the period considered.

7. Academic Staff Profile Excluding technical staff members, the number of on-duty local and  expatriate academic staff members at HU with respect to their  academic rank is indicated in Tables 2 and 3. Table 2 shows that local  female academic staff members account for only 13% (n =119). With regard to academic rank, of the total number of academic staff members just 16.5% (n =154) are Assistant Professors and above. Furthermore, 58% (n =547) and 25.5% (n =241) hold the rank of Lecturer and Graduate Assistant, respectively. The statistics indicates  that the university should also strive to increase the proportion of its  female academic staff members significantly.

The component bar chart (Fig. 7) demonstrates the number of local and  expatriate academic staff members who are currently on-duty at HU in  2016/17 academic year. Of the total academic staff members working at  HU (n =1,022), expatriate academic staff members account for approximately 8% (n =80) 25 of whom have been recruited this year.
