JACKSON, Tenn. – Aug. 30, 2006 – Union University’s non-duplicating headcount for the 2005-2006 academic year was a record-high 3,728 students.
Non-duplicating headcount is a figure used by educational institutions to show the total number of students enrolled for any classes during a given year. No student in any program is counted more than once, whether they enroll for one term or for all five of Union’s terms.
Numbers over the past decade show that Union’s non-duplicating headcount has been on a steady rise:
1997 – 2,183
1998 – 2,365
1999 – 2,889
2000 – 2,944
2001 – 3,130
2002 – 3,325
2003 – 3,438
2004 – 3,520
2005 – 3,513
2006 – 3,728
“This is an amazing picture,” Union President David S. Dockery said. “It indicates the broad sweep of the influence of Union University over the past decade. We give thanks for all 3,728 students and pray that each one has been positively influenced by the Christ-centered excellence that characterizes the wonderful faculty and staff of this university.”
The “Union 2010: A Vision for Excellence” long-range plan calls for the university to have a non-duplicating headcount of 4,000 total students by the year 2010.
