High Point University is the Premier Life Skills University working to transform the lives of students. HPU has transformed its campus and culture under the leadership of President Nido R. Qubein, who became the seventh president of this 94-year-old institution in 2005. Since 2005, President Qubein has led a $2 billion investment in academic programs (six new academic schools have been added), student life facilities (including two student centers), 10 new residential communities, and currently under construction, a 4,500-seat basketball arena, conference center and hotel. Innovative educational initiatives like the President’s Seminar on Life Skills, a required course for all freshmen, ensure students grow not only in specific academic areas of expertise, but also develop competencies in communication, networking, coachability, fiscal literacy, and service. These are among the traits HPU refers to as “life skills,” which employers rank as the most critical skills necessary to succeed in the workplace. HPU offers a broad spectrum of academic coursework, including 60 majors, 64 minors, and 13 graduated degree programs. All programs are complemented by experiential learning programs including internships, undergraduate research, global education and service learning. The approach to life preparation is best showcased by the 97% placement rate for graduates employed or continuing their education within 6 months of graduation from HPU.
