1. Boosting Enrollment Against The Odds

Dominican University

by Liam Knox, Inside Higher Ed

“On paper, Dominican University fits the mold of higher ed’s most endangered species: a small religious institution in the demographically challenged heart of the Midwest.

In reality, not only is the college in good shape - it’s never been better. The Catholic institution welcomed 650 new students this fall, the largest incoming class in its 122-year history and an 8 percent increase over last year’s then record-setting class.

Those numbers make Dominican stand out among its regional peers.”
