A Business Journal analysis of more than 1,500 primarily campus-based, four-year colleges and universities with at least 1,000 students found that while average total enrollment fell 5% between fall 2016 and 2020, roughly one-third of the schools reported enrollment growth during that period—including Logan University. With a 59% growth in enrollment (from 1,136 students in 2016 to 1,806 students in 2020), Logan ranked No. 17 on the list.
“Our growth over the past five years truly speaks to the demand for careers in chiropractic and health sciences. This fall, we have 930 Doctor of Chiropractic students on campus and 900 students enrolled in online degrees in our College of Health Sciences. Next summer and fall, we’ll continue to expand our degree offerings with the launch of master’s degrees in Athletic Training, Strength & Conditioning and Integrative Pediatrics. All of this growth has given us an opportunity to plan a $28 million renovation and expansion of our Science & Research Center, which will be named the Fuhr Science Center, thanks to a $1 million lead gift from Logan alumnus Dr. Arlan Fuhr and his wife, Judi. While we see strong numbers in our enrollment, we continuously focus on cultivating new partnerships to provide our students in enriching clinical experiences in a variety of collaborative and integrated health care settings.” – Dr. Clay McDonald, President, Logan University
