University System Marks Record Enrollment
BISMARCK, N.D. - Spring 2011 enrollment at the 11 North Dakota University System colleges and universities has reached a record spring term high, according to the official Spring Semester 2011 Enrollment Report released today to the State Board of Higher Education.
The Spring 2011 systemwide enrollment of 45,152 students includes an increase of 1,794 students or 4.1 percent compared to 43,358 last spring. University System officials attribute this increase to a number of factors that point to enhanced responsiveness to today's learning environment.
"Responsiveness to student and state needs is a top priority of the 11 University System campuses," said Bill Goetz, chancellor of the North Dakota University System. "Students expect high-quality education at an affordable price, and all 11 institutions deliver on that expectation. Also - now more than ever before - systemwide, our programmatic offerings are responsive to North Dakota's emerging workforce needs."
