Moncton – Enrollment at Crandall University has reached a record high of over 1,000 students.
As of the winter 2022 Census Day, Crandall University has 1,104 students from over fifty countries enrolled across all programs, an increase of 34% over last year.
This growth is even more impressive when considering the difficulties that the pandemic has placed on the admissions and recruitment processes of universities. “It’s thrilling to see this period of growth at Crandall – to see our student body grow across nearly every program, even in the midst of a pandemic,” said Chris Robb, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management. “Our admissions teams have worked hard to connect with students in new ways, both locally and globally, and it’s exciting to meet those students when they arrive on campus; for many, it’s their first time being here in person!”
Despite this season of growth, Crandall has no plan to shed its reputation as a welcoming, community-focused organization. “It is significant for us, now being a university of more than 1,000 students, but even so we remain a small university by many metrics,” said Dr. Jon Ohlhauser, Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs. “The most important of those is the sense of community that we foster on campus. We do this through maintaining small class sizes and providing additional support where it is needed most, and we will continue to do so as we grow.”
Above all, Crandall sees this growth for what it truly is: an opportunity to impact more lives. “It is by no small effort that we have reached this milestone, and we are incredibly thankful to everyone who has been a part of helping Crandall University reach into the community and around the world as we have grown,” said Robert Knowles, Vice President for Advancement and current Acting President. “The story of Crandall is a story of lives transformed. As we grow, it means we have the opportunity for more and more people to experience that transformation, and we look forward to seeing where the future will take us.”
