Crandall University sets enrollment record

Moncton – Enrollment at Crandall University is at the highest level of the institution’s 72-year history, rapidly approaching 1,000 students.

As of September 2021, Crandall University has 962 enrolled students and is on pace to surpass the 1,000-student mark for the first time this January. Across all programs, enrollment increased by 28% over last year, with an increase of 34% in incoming undergraduate students alone.

The growth has been exciting, especially as admissions teams faced the challenge of recruiting students in the midst of public health restrictions related to COVID-19: “Our enrollment team had to think creatively and connect in new ways with our students,” said Chris Robb, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management. “We are thrilled to be experiencing tremendous growth at Crandall, thanks to all the great work by our faculty and staff. They have been able to create a community of excellence in education for our students, even during the pandemic.”

While some of the university’s growth can be attributed to the addition of new degree programs, many existing programs saw increases as well: “We saw a lot of interest in our new Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology as well as significant increases in applications for our Degree Completion programs, along with our popular Bachelor of Education degree. We are very excited about the direction our enrollment is going,” stated Robb. “This January, we will also be launching a new delivery method for our most popular graduate program. The Master of Management Online will be a unique online experience where students from all over Canada and the world can connect, learn, and advance their careers.”

In the midst of this season of growth, one of the primary goals at Crandall is to maintain its community atmosphere: “Small class sizes mean that students and professors are able to connect more easily, and this contributes to student success,” said Dr. Bruce Fawcett, Crandall’s President and Vice Chancellor. “As we grow, we are hiring additional staff and faculty to support our students and keep our class sizes at a level where these kinds of connections can flourish.”
