Maryville University’s commitment to innovation is paying dividends for the institution. Maryville has grown to over 10,000 students and is on track to have multi-million-dollar surpluses for more than 12 consecutive years.

In Fall 2021, Maryville was named the fourth-fastest growing private university in the United States by the Chronicle of Higher Education.
