MISSOURI VALLEY COLLEGE ANNOUNCES LARGEST ENROLLMENT IN SCHOOL HISTORY Missouri Valley College’s fall 2018 enrollment was 1,506, which was the largest enrollment in the College’s history. Of the 1,506 students, 549 were incoming freshmen, 687 were Missouri residents and 291 were international students. The entire student body is comprised of students from 48 states and two US territories as well as 51 countries. MVC amped up enrollment from last year with increased strategic recruitment initiatives, some of which included expanding the number of visits to high schools and college fairs, targeted social media advertisements and a more personalized touch with student outreach. “We have many new faces on campus both in the student body and also in the faculty ranks," said Dr. Bonnie Humphrey, MVC president. "Their excitement and desire to learn and grow as they advance toward their degree is contagious on campus.”


MVC adjunct faculty member Dr. Gerardo Acay traveled to Russia to present his paper “Design Principles and Practices in Contemporary Social and Political Theory: A Rawlsian Illustration.” His proposal was accepted for the Thirteenth International Conference on Design Principles & Practices at Saint Petersburg State University. The University is located in Saint Petersburg, Russia where Dr. Acay traveled in March to present. The aim of Dr. Acay’s paper is to examine the core concepts of design and practice in contemporary social and political theory. During his presentation he singled out one of the most well known and monumental works in recent attempts to generate a theory of social justice-John Rawls, “A Theory of Justice” (1971/1999)
