Fort Wayne, Ind.—Indiana Tech’s growth is continuing this year with a 29% increase in total enrollment. Enrollment for fall 2012 is 7,010 compared to 5,437 in 2011.
“Students value our focus on providing career-oriented degree programs,” said Dr. Arthur E. Snyder, Indiana Tech president. “Our ability to provide those degrees in a variety of formats allows us to meet the needs of learners of all ages and stages.”
Indiana Tech offers degree programs in a traditional semester format, an accelerated classroom format, and an accelerated online format. In fall 2013, the university will add a law school with 100 students in the charter class.
About 2,000 of Indiana Tech’s students attend classes at the main campus in downtown Fort Wayne, and the steady enrollment growth has prompted plans to build a new 60,000-square-foot academic center on the campus. The university expects to break ground for the building in May 2013.
The increase in students also has driven growth in the number of faculty and staff at the university.
“We’re growing, and we hope to continue that growth,” Snyder said. “But we’re still small enough that our faculty and staff can get to know our students and support them as a community. We don’t ever want to grow so large that we forget our commitment to relationship-based education.”
In addition to the Fort Wayne campus, Indiana Tech also has locations in Elkhart, Fishers, Greenwood, Huntington, Indianapolis, Jeffersonville, Kendallville, Louisville, Mishawaka, Munster, Northern Kentucky, Plainfield, and Warsaw as well as extensive online programs.
