College enrollment breaks all-time record
Growing even faster than Iowa State University as a whole, student enrollment in the College of Human Sciences topped the 4,000 mark for the first time -- and by a wide margin. This fall, 4,196 students are enrolled in Human Sciences programs, up from 3,926 in 2010.
Since 2005, Human Sciences enrollment has grown by more than 27%. Nearly one in every seven ISU students is now enrolled in a College of Human Sciences program.
"The increasing number of students in our college, at a time when the number of students graduating from high school is declining, is a testament to the relevance of our programs," said Pamela White, dean of the College of Human Sciences.
"By addressing issues in health and wellness, education and human development, science and technology in the human environment, and community and entrepreneurship, our programs are improving people's lives," White said. "Alumni can be proud their programs have constantly evolved to meet the needs and demands of our fast-changing world."
