Although this annual report is mainly a review of what happened during the past year, it is also the basis for our planning for the future. Since the middle of the twentieth century, Michigan Tech’s graduate programs have seen nearly a ten-fold increase in enrollment. Fall 2009 enrollment reached a record high of 1,206 students, approximately one-seventh of Michigan Tech’s overall enrollment. The preliminary Fall 2010 numbers continue to be promising with a graduate enrollment of 1,241 students. The University’s Strategic Plan calls for continued growth in graduate enrollment so that the number of graduate students will reach 3,000 by 2035. Faculty and staff on campus are working hard to make this vision a reality.
