Augsburg University is once again set to welcome one of its largest and most diverse classes this fall. Augsburg’s largest incoming class was in Fall 2019, when 636 first-year students enrolled. In 2020, it welcomed its second-largest class. This year’s incoming class is on track to be approximately the same size as the previous two years.
In addition, the percentage of BIPOC students at Augsburg has increased significantly since 2008. That year, 18% of incoming students identified as BIPOC. More recently, approximately 65% of first-year students have identified as BIPOC.
A recent KARE-11 News report on fall 2021 enrollment at local universities included a brief interview with Robert Gould, Augsburg’s vice president for strategic enrollment management.
