I’m proud to lead High Point University, the Premier Life Skills University, where academic innovation drives the transformational development process of our students.

Project Discovery was so effective. It gave me the opportunity to explore classes in a variety of different fields so I could get a feel for my strengths and the topics I was passionate about.

Having an app that tracks my progress and pushes me to go out and experience all aspects of campus is very helpful. I enjoyed attending events and earning badges while using the HPU Rise App during Summer Advantage.

A road map can go a long way. The HPU Rise app really complements HPU’s commitment to instilling students with life skills. This unique app helps students keep track of those life skills and articulate the value of what they’ve accomplished.
Dr. Stephanie Crofton
Former Vice President for Student Engagement and Success, who spearheaded the RISE app
My Success Coach helped me find my way. I talked to her throughout my four years at HPU. I would see her on campus, and she’d ask about everything from my classes to medical school interviews. She was a great motivator who encouraged me.

The idea of being able to receive a tuition-free graduate degree focused on communication and business leadership was the complete educational package I never knew I was looking for.
