The University of Toledo is celebrating an increase in enrollment for the first time in six years.
UT President Sharon L. Gaber hosted a reception Sept. 2 in Libbey Hall to thank members of the University’s enrollment team who worked throughout the year to recruit and retain more students.“It is important to take a moment to celebrate the hard work of the team who dedicated their time and energy to share the many great opportunities available here at UT and to encourage students through the enrollment process,” Gaber said. “This is a University-wide achievement that reverses the recent trend of enrollment decline, and we all should be proud of this success.”
Preliminary numbers show an increase near 200 students for fall semester following five previous years of enrollment decline. The official enrollment numbers will be available Tuesday, Sept. 6.
For the third year, the University also is celebrating increased retention of students who continue their studies at UT after a successful first year.
