TIFFIN, OH —Tiffin University welcomed 512 new students to its campus this fall. This number includes freshmen, international as well as transfer students.
New students hail from 27 states and 19 countries (new countries this year include Austria and Zambia).
“The cultural exchange between domestic and international students is critical to Tiffin University; it moves our initiative of Celebrating Cultural Uniqueness (CCU) to a commitment that prepares our students for success in a diverse world,” said TU President Lillian Schumacher. “This commitment strengthens understanding and acceptance of each other while sharpening the student's competitive edge. TU’s commitment is to ensure that every student, regardless of the major field of study, graduates with a set of relevant, globally diverse competencies that allow them to hit the ground running. That is what sets TU apart from many other institutions.”
With over 50 degree-granting programs that are focused on linking knowledge to professional practice, TU provides a transformative education both in and out of the classroom. Students prepare for the real-world with internships and experiential learning, on-campus work and special class projects. TU’s faculty carry advanced degrees, but their on-the-job perspective and experience make them subject matter experts.
“Tiffin University’s integrated enrollment process has increased the recruitment footprint, including an added emphasis on international student recruitment,” said Dr. Amy Wood, Vice President of Enrollment Management.
