RADNOR, Pa. (Oct. 7, 2016)—On the heels of its transition to University status, Cabrini has seen a continued rise in undergraduate enrollment which has increased consecutively for the past three years.

The rise in enrollment advances the University’s strategic plan—the 2020 Roadmap—which outlines ways to ensure diversification, sustainable growth, and expanded outreach through July 2020.
This year’s incoming class, the Class of 2020, is the University’s largest class in nearly a decade.
“This group of motivated, first-year students are the first to attend Cabrini University for their entire academic career,” said Donald B. Taylor, PhD, President of Cabrini. “They embody a University-wide charge for strategic growth and diversity, so it’s fitting that their graduation will act as a culmination of our 2020 Roadmap.”
The incoming class—which has increased 23 percent since the previous year—is supported by a new academic structure that organizes the University into schools by scholarship. The School of Education; the School of Business, Arts, and Media; the School of Humanities and Social Sciences; and the School of Natural Sciences and Allied Health are all supported by a new Center for Student Success.
“The academic credentials of this year’s incoming class have remained on par or have gone up from previous incoming classes,” said Bob Reese, Vice President of Enrollment Management. “Our expectations remain unchanged as well. The new structure and Center for Student Success ensure that our students have the resources to achieve their goals both academically and professionally.”
While welcoming a larger class, the University was able to accommodate on-campus housing for its first year students. The strategic plan calls for further development to accommodate its increasing student body, a goal that was recently supported by a $1 million state grant.
