The new year is only two weeks old, and it didn’t take long for Methodist University to begin garnering national and international attention.
Higher Education Digest, an independent higher education magazine with a wide-spread international audience, recently promoted Methodist University as one of 10 “must-watch” North American colleges and universities in 2022. MU was the only university from North Carolina on a list that featured Oklahoma State, San Diego State, and three others from the U.S.
“MU is honored to be featured on this well-respected list,” said Minnu Paul, director of MU’s Global Education. “Our University is constantly working to create an experience that engages, enriches, and empowers our students’ lives. The strong leadership from MU has led to a stout educational system that supports all of our students, especially our international students. This ranking solidifies the fact that we are a globalized campus.”
The magazine’s writers point to a number of MU’s successes and attractions, including its thriving city atmosphere (nestled between the Appalachian Mountain Range and North Carolina coastline), MU’s ranking as the No. 1 most diverse university in North Carolina, the more than 80 types of undergraduate and graduate programs, and the top 16% ranking nationally in The New York Times for overall economic mobility.
The story says Methodist University is “helping unleash the full potential of an individual’s mind… and committed to an ecumenical spirit that respects diversity and recognizes the dignity and worth of all human beings.”
The Higher Education Digest also touches on why Methodist University is known as one of the top institutions for international students. Currently home to students from more than 50 countries and six continents, MU provides a dedicated Global Education staff who can support international students’ unique social and financial needs. The article goes on to highlight the University’s Campus Engagement Office and One Stop as additional staff resources for international students.
“Plus, non-international staff and people in the Fayetteville community are welcoming and supportive of international students,” said Paul. “They donate in kind, monetarily, they pick up students from the airport, and they provide a home away from home in various ways.”
