MNU announced its Fall 2020 Census Day numbers today. The total number of students enrolled for fall 2020 semester is 2,239, an increase of 17% from fall 2019. Freshmen are part of the equation, up 10%, the class is the largest since 2017. Continuing education student enrollment is also up significantly.
MNU met the challenge of reopening during the pandemic in late August with strict protocol to protect students and employees. Its Emergency Response Team continues to meet weekly to adjust protocol, schedules and provisions for the campus.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to continue on-campus classes and events and we cannot take this for granted," says President David Spittal. "I appreciate the cooperation, diligence and heroic actions of faculty, staff and students to get this done together. Pioneer Spirit takes many forms and we can accomplish much together, but at its best it is manifested by patience, unselfish acts, mutual support and respect for one another as good neighbors.”
