Wednesday, August 14, 2019

In an environment of increasing challenges for higher education institutions, Trine University continues to thrive and is well-positioned for the future, Trine President Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., said Monday, Aug. 12, in his annual state of the university address.

Speaking at the university's employee kickoff in advance of the fall semester, Brooks told faculty and staff Trine is at "one of the most successful periods in its history."

The university recently announced it expects to enroll more than 5,000 students for the third year in a row this fall, with main campus enrollment driving growth. Trine plans to welcome more than 700 new students this fall for the third straight year, with the residential population rising by 5 percent and returning students increasing by 7 percent.
