HPU GRADUATES STAND OUT FROM THE SEA of new faces entering the workforce. Companies that employ HPU alumni and flock to campus to recruit students will tell you that. That’s because the university’s educational model is grounded in life skills.

Students embark on a one-of-a-kind journey when they enroll at HPU. Each student is paired with a Success Coach to guide them as they transition to college. They have access to a team of advisors inside the Office of Career and Professional Development who help them build their marketability for internships and careers.

Through their coursework, much of which is dedicated to experiential learning, students begin to develop their portfolios and relationships with professors who embody a growth mindset.

They study abroad in other countries, conduct high-level undergraduate research earlier than students at other universities and meet global innovators on campus like Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak, HPU’s Innovator in Residence, and Netflix Co-founder Marc Randolph, HPU’s Entrepreneur in Residence.

These efforts result in 97 percent of graduates employed or continuing their education within six months of earning their degree.

Life skills. It’s part of what distinguishes HPU graduates from other universities.
