Beginning with an initial cohort of only 10 teacher candidates eight years ago, Moreland University’s graduates and candidates now number more than 5,500 students in over 135 countries, paving the way for future growth and development.

The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic has triggered a national shift toward online education and a dramatic surge in applications to Moreland University. As a leading innovator in the field, the institution saw a 56 percent increase in applications in the first six months of 2020 compared with the same period last year.

“This is a natural next step for our institution,” said Dr. Emily Feistritzer, Founder, President & CEO. “We have grown dramatically, and the new organizational structure will allow us to expand into other areas. It’s an exciting milestone for our faculty and students.”
