Pomona saw a 454% increase in the number of administrators from 1990 to 2022.

Stat of the Day
Not bad for DALL·E!

From the Washington Post:

In 1990, Pomona had 1,487 students, 180 tenured and tenure-track professors, and 56 administrators — deans, associate deans, assistant deans and the like, not counting clerical staff, cleaners and so on. As of 2022, the most recent year for which I have data, the number of students had increased 17 percent, to 1,740, while the number of professors had fallen to 175. The number of administrators had increased to 310, an average of 7.93 new administrators per year. – Gary Smith
