Concordia College is Again Recognized as a Fastest-Growing College by The Chronicle of Higher Education

According to The Chronicle of Higher Education Almanac 2019, Concordia College New York was the 14th fastest-growing private nonprofit master’s-granting institution in the nation in the years from 2007 to 2017.
 
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 2007 to 2017, total enrollment at Concordia College New York climbed from 708 to 1,597, a gain of 125.6%. In the spring of 2019, total enrollment reached 1,695.
 
Thoughtfully formed partnerships with select off-site educational institutions have helped fuel Concordia’s growth, even as the College’s historic Bronxville campus has maintained its small-school feel. Concordia has become a college where worlds meet, as students across the spectrum of background, ethnicity, nationality, faith tradition, age and life experience learn together in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
 
Concordia College President Dr. John A. Nunes said: “I am grateful for Concordia’s significant and continuing growth, begun under the leadership of President Viji George. Despite challenges in the higher education market, the value of Concordia College’s Christian education resonates with a broadly diverse audience: ethics-infused programs that lead to careers with meaning, grounded in the liberal arts and informed by personalized, holistic support.”
