Christian colleges and universities are seeing an increase in enrollment despite the national enrollment rate of college students being on a decline, higher education experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The national undergraduate enrollment rate dropped 1.1% during the fall 2022 semester while the rate declined a total of 4.2% since 2020, according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. Many faith-based institutions, however, saw an increase in enrollment which higher education experts claim is because of these institutions’ commitment to their roots.

“We have doubled down on our core essence and purpose as an institution and made that well known to prospective students,” Jonathan Sanford, University of Dallas (UD) president, told the DCNF.

Sanford describes UD as a “Catholic, liberal arts university known for intellectual rigor and deep commitment to the Catholic faith and a robust, Western-based classical education.”

In fall 2022, the Texas school welcomed its second-largest incoming class, following it’s record enrollment rate of 487 freshman students during the 2021-2022 academic year.

Sanford said, “I think there’s a deep hunger in the souls of all individuals, but particularly in this generation, for a real education and real exposure to the timeless ideas and classical texts as well as real exposure to how to build upon those timeless truths and classical texts in order to be innovative contributors to the renewal of culture.”

Director of Marketing and Communications at Benedictine College in Kansas Stephen Johnson reported that the Catholic liberal arts school had a “record enrollment once again for Fall 2022 and recruiting is going strong for Fall 2023.”

The University of Dallas tweeted, “What makes UD standout? “We humans are integrated wholes with minds, brains, passions, senses and bodies. Because of this, we cannot hope to cultivate virtues of the mind without the virtues of character.” – President Sanford via @CampusReform #UDallas”

The University of Dallas tweeted, “Thank you for investing in our @UofDallas students, and President Sanford’s vision of Forging our Future. While we deserve to celebrate this milestone, another significant challenge lies ahead: 1,900 alumni donors by May 31, 2023. Help spread the word! 👉”

The Benedictine College tweeted, “SEEK 2023 was a success 🙌 Benedictine College was proud to bring the largest group of students to this impactful event. We’re already looking forward to next year!#SEEK23”
