Brenau University’s mission challenges students to live extraordinary lives of personal and professional fulfillment. As students pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees or non-degree programs at Brenau campuses and online, each prepares for a lifetime of intellectual accomplishment and appreciation of artistic expression through a curriculum enriched by the liberal arts, scientific inquiry and global awareness.
In order to prepare students for lives of personal and professional fulfillment, the university employs a number of measures to track students’ success systematically from the beginning of their academic career to their graduation and job placement. Metrics used to monitor students’ success are: ongoing enrollment as expressed by retention rates from first to second year, course completion rates, six year graduation rates, pass rates for appropriate professional licensure, and job placements rates in their fields of study. These measures are assessed regularly and the most current findings are published below. In monitoring these indices, Brenau University strives to conform to and exceed national standards (based on the most recent data available from the National Center for Education Statistics where applicable).
