High Point University is The Premier Life Skills University. Having radically transformed the campus since 2005 under the leadership of President Nido R. Qubein, HPU knows transformation well. That's why leaders commit to preparing students for the world as it's going to be, not as it is.
HPU is a values-based intuition that arms students with the life skills employers want. It's no wonder 97% of our graduates are employed or continuing their education within 6 months of graduation.
At HPU, every student receives an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment with caring people. By focusing holistically on transformational education, HPU attracts students from all 50 states and nearly 50 countries.
A $2 billion investment in academic programs and student life facilities proves HPU’s commitment to transformation. The university’s call to action is simple and profound: Choose to be extraordinary!
In 1924 High Point College opened as a cooperative venture between the Methodist Protestant Church and the City of High Point. The campus consisted of three partially completed buildings, there were nine faculty members, and student enrollment was 122. Today the University has 122 buildings, is attractively landscaped, the full-time faculty numbers nearly 300, and approximately 4,600 students are enrolled in a wide variety of daytime, evening, and summer programs. Much has changed over the years. Yet the mission of High Point University may still be best expressed in the words of its founders more than nine decades ago: “to help us to appreciate and to love our own, to know our needs and opportunities, and to make ourselves more efficient servants of Christ.”
The mission of High Point University is to deliver educational experiences that enlighten, challenge, and prepare students to lead lives of significance in complex global communities.
