Chancellor Kathryn Cruz-Uribe welcomed new and returning students to campus during the annual Back with the Pack celebration the first week of classes, August 26-30.

“Within the last six years, IU East has doubled its enrollment. From fall 2007 to fall 2013, the university has continued to experience an increase in the number of students obtaining a four-year or graduate degree in the classroom and online,” Cruz-Uribe said. “Our dedication to the region to provide a top-quality, affordable degree focused on the personal experience of each student continues to make IU East the university of choice.”

IU East increased both the number of new freshmen and the number of new transfer students compared to last year. Transfer students increased 15.7 percent.

Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Larry Richards said, “IU East continues to be an innovator in the delivery of high quality college education. As long as we do that, we will continue to grow our student body and our faculty and staff resources.”
