Chicago Columbia enrollment at 20-year low, Provost says, ‘Keep the faith’ - Andrea Salcedo, CHRONICLE

Despite predictions that 2016 would be the year of enrollment “turnaround,” official figures showed a net loss of nearly 850 students, marking one of Columbia’s largest drops during its seventh consecutive year of enrollment decline. Final enrollment numbers for the Fall 2016 Semester published on the Office of Institutional Effectiveness’ website revealed a 9.4 percent decrease in last year’s total—down from 8,961 students to 8,120 students. Enrollment has not been as low in two decades, when the college reported 8,066 students in 1996, according to the College Archives. The college reached its highest point in 2008 with 12,464 students and has decreased annually since then.
