Richmont Achieves Record Enrollment

Richmont Graduate University has broken its previous 2021 record to achieve unprecedented total enrollment. “I’m proud to announce that the University reached a new record enrollment this spring of three hundred and twenty-nine students,” comments President Timothy Quinnan. “This achievement reflects the strength and draw of excellent academic programs, our strategic investment in online learning modalities, and the unwavering commitment of staff and faculty to seeing Richmont flourish at a time when many other institutions are struggling.”

Acting Provost Josh Rice adds, “It is most encouraging to see growth across the breadth of our programs and modalities. This trend is a harbinger of what is to come as we have several new programs rolling out this year and our online modality of the CMHC degree is drawing increasing interest across the nation.”

Richmont Announces Temporary Shift to Virtual Learning

As we begin our spring semester, out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our campus community, administration has determined that until January 20th in-person classes will be taught virtually, according to the regular campus schedule, via zoom.   Classes are scheduled to resume meeting in person on January 21st.  All other university services will be open, including libraries and counseling centers.

Dr. Preston Hill Published in Christianity Today

Dr. Preston Hill has been recently published in one of the premier publications in Christian journalism.  His piece, “Have Christians Forgotten How to Fight with God?” explores the biblical theme of lament within our present social context. “Writing this piece for Christianity Today was simply an immense joy,” Dr. Hill comments. “Since my research has focused on the importance of Christ’s trauma for the suffering of the world today, it was a special privilege to articulate in this piece Richmont’s distinctive approach to theodicy, trauma, and Christian integration and how this can empower Christians today to be more honest in their relationship with God about the pain of the world.” The article can be found here:
