Since 2013, Midwives College of Utah students have experienced the benefits of:

  • access to federal funding for education and cost of living expenses,
  • an increase in student support services
  • peer to peer and teacher to student engagement through synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities
  • an improved distance-education structure.

Based on MCU’s continued commitment to excellence, we are forecasting an upward trend in retention and completion rates.
