According to The Chronicle of Higher Education Almanac 2018-19, Concordia College New York was the 11th fastest-growing private nonprofit baccalaureate institution in the nation in the years from 2006 to 2016.
Each year the Almanac offers statistics and data on the students, faculty, administration and finances of American colleges and universities.
Over the ten-year period from 2006 to 2016, total enrollment at Concordia College New York climbed from 677 to 1,185, a gain of 75%. For 2017, total enrollment was 1,597.
Much of the enrollment growth is attributable to thoughtfully formed partnerships with select off-site educational institutions. The college’s historic Bronxville campus is small and will stay that way, as personal attention for each student is a hallmark of the Concordia College experience. The college’s size also amplifies the distinctly global feel of the campus: students of notable diversity from 32 countries form authentic connections as they learn with and from each other in a close environment.
Concordia College President Dr. John A. Nunes said: “At a time when enrollment numbers are a concern in higher education, our small school has experienced significant growth – growth that started under the leadership of President Viji George and that I am excited to continue. Delivering a consistently excellent educational experience to all our students – whether on campus or at a partnering institution – is a top priority. Our Christian college is preparing students to make a big impact on our world through lives of passion, purpose and service, and each and every one of these impact-makers is very important to us.”
