Olivet Nazarene University announced the establishment of ONU Global, a program that oversees the university’s School of Graduate and Continuing Studies and administers non-traditional learning.
ONU Global has locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan, offering more than 30 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs. Students may complete programs on-ground, online, or a combination of both. With approval for online programming in 46 states, ONU Global offers 14 programs fully online.
Partnered with more than 200 organizations across the U.S., ONU Global has more than 150 learning locations, including five regional centers. ONU Global has a presence in Hong Kong along with partnerships in China, the Czech Republic, South Africa, Dubai UAE, and Israel. Students affiliated with partner organizations receive a tuition discount, access to professional development seminars, use of ONU facilities, and additional benefits.
“Thousands of students are currently enrolled in the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies, and many new students are starting every day, creating rapid growth in Olivet’s non-traditional programming,” said Ryan Spittal, vice president for strategic expansion. “The purpose of ONU Global is to continue expanding the missional impact and quality programming of Olivet. Over the next five years, we expect continued significant advances in our operation, including new programming and locations that expand opportunities for students.”
ONU Global offers programs in health care, education, business, engineering, criminal justice, and ministry. Spittal pointed out most ONU Global students are non-residential, non-traditional students.
“ONU Global provides a wide range of highly respected programs that are recognized in the industry for preparing students to compete in the job market and our constantly changing world,” Spittal said. “Olivet has become a leader in the Christian non-traditional learning environment, and ONU Global provides the opportunity for growing numbers of individuals to access Olivet programming.”
