programs for designated gifts
Huntington University will accept designated gifts to programs, departments, athletics, or other areas of interest from alumni and friends. Following are some of the programs that are new to the University where start-up funding will enable them to get off to a strong start.
Peoria, Arizona campus
Our satellite campus, which could be holding classes as early as spring 2014, will initially offer programs in digital media arts, exercise science and nursing. In addition, the campus may offer opportunities for Indiana HU students to study in Arizona for full semesters or shorter term classes.
Life Science Education and Research Consortium – Fort Wayne
Several area education institutions, along with Parkview Hospital, have signed a memorandum of understanding with a commitment to establish the Life Science Education and Research Consortium of Northeast Indiana. Partners include Fort Wayne Community Schools, Huntington University, Ivy Tech Community College-Northeast, and Trine University.
The Consortium will utilize existing space on Parkview Hospital’s Randallia campus and serve as a regional initiative to align and leverage education, applied research, business incubation and economic development resources focusing on life sciences and health care. The Consortium is committed to generating a world-class center with a focus on rehabilitation, senior care and behavioral health.
Each educational institution is working collaboratively on programs and services that it will offer. Programs to be offered by Huntington University will include: Human Resource Management (BS), Not-for-Profit Leadership (BS), Nursing (RN-BSN, BS), Counseling (MA), Occupational Therapy (MS, DOT). There will be significant cost for Huntington University in the start-up of the new occupational therapy program, but it is expected to provide significant return in student enrollment.
For-Profit Ventures and Collaboration
Huntington University recently reorganized its administrative team to create more opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurial ventures for the institution as well as improving collaborative relationships in Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana. Leadership in this area will focus on partnerships, collaborations, resource reallocation and new initiatives for the university, particularly in the Fort Wayne area. This team will also focus on resource development through entrepreneurial ventures, new academic program initiatives and collaborations with not-for-profit and for-profit enterprises.
Loan Repayment Program
Because many HU graduates put mission before money when considering job options, sometimes paying back student loans can be a stretch. The Loan Repayment Program (LRAP), provided to all incoming freshmen, can bridge the gap. Through the program, HU graduates are reimbursed for their loans, either in part or in whole, based on their incomes. To help maintain this program for our graduates, please consider a generous contribution to Huntington University and designate it to LRAP.

“The Loan Repayment Program has lifted a huge burden from me! I am confident that God has not only called me to ministry but also to Huntington because He has provided a way to help financially cover my education. Without this program HU would not be possible for me. It is a true blessing!”
