Newman University spring enrollment sets another record

Mar 10, 2014

The official federal enrollment report for the Spring 2014 semester shows a solid performance for Newman University, with enrollment growth driven by a new program launched in January. Spring enrollment totals show 3,297 students enrolled in courses at Newman — a new spring headcount record.

“Recent growth for Newman has come through our graduate programs,” said Michael Austin, Ph.D., Newman University Provost. “This past January, we also launched a new Organizational Leadership degree through our Masters of Education program and it really took off.”

Graduate enrollment for spring increased from 644 students to 811, a large portion of which can be attributed to the new education degree option tailored to working adults. The degree, a Master of Science in Education in Organizational Leadership, allows students to complete the program in less than two years and offers a flexible schedule similar to other Newman education degrees. Anyone with a bachelor’s degree can enroll in the Organizational Leadership program, which is offered through the Education Department but does not require teacher certification.

Newman University is continuing to offer a New Program Grant of 25 percent off of the entire Organizational Leadership program for all students who enter for spring classes. Second 8-week classes begin March 14. Additional information can be found at or by emailing Marx at [email protected].
