Spring Arbor University to Open Southfield Learning Site


tSpring Arbor University is set to open a branch in Southfield that will offer classes for associate and master’s degrees, as well as bachelor’s degree completion. The center on Lasher Road is one of nearly a dozen in the Michigan and Ohio and is expected to be ready for fall classes.

tSpring Arbor’s main campus in Jackson caters to traditional undergraduate students as well as some graduate students, while the university’s learning sites offer two associate degrees, nine degree completion programs, and 11 master’s degrees.

t“Spring Arbor’s new Southfield location will provide an opportunity for us to better serve the southeast Michigan area with an unparalleled educational experience,” says Brent D. Ellis, the university’s president. “An increasing number of students are seeking an education that offers more than a normal classroom experience for learning, and we want to provide a holistic approach for students.”

tThe East Region Learning site, located in the Lahser Center II building at 26200 Lahser Rd., will place an emphasis on high-speed Internet usage/access and the integration of video into the classroom, Ellis says. The 10,200-square-foot building includes a video-conferencing classroom as well as individual student computer workstations.

tA Christian liberal arts school, Spring Arbor has more than 4,000 enrolled students and announced in March that its number of enrolled freshman grew by 17.5 percent in 2013, when compared to the previous year’s enrollment.
