‘MUCH TO BE PROUD OF’ IN NEW UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA ENROLLMENT NUMBERS
Monday, October 01, 2018
Freshman enrollment is holding steady, the University of Nebraska’s student body is increasingly diverse, and campuses continue to grow in areas important to workforce and economic development, according to fall 2018 enrollment figures announced by NU President Hank Bounds.
Enrollment across the four NU campuses and the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis this fall is 51,883, according to Bounds. That represents the fourth-highest total in NU history and a 1 percent decline from fall 2017.
“In a perfect world, enrollment would go up every year,” Bounds said. “But after five straight years of growth, including back-to-back record highs, some ebb and flow is inevitable. Particularly when you consider the challenges the University of Nebraska has faced in recent years, there’s much to be proud of in this enrollment report.
