HU Announces Step Forward on Tour

HUNTINGTON, Ind. — Huntington University plans to bring in the new decade with Step Forward on Tour, a collection of special events focused on sharing the Huntington University story with alumni and friends around the United States. Step Forward on Tour will begin in February, with other stops planned for later months.   

“For those who attend the events, Step Forward on Tour is an excellent opportunity to get an in-depth campus update,” said Stephen Weingart, vice president for university advancement, “but it’s also a time to form connections with other Foresters. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to meet the Forester Nation in a literal sense – to see in person the network of alumni who are living across the nation.”

Over the course of the next year, Step Forward on Tour will travel to various states and invite the Forester Family to step forward with Huntington University in its story. The tour presents a unique chance for those who were not on campus for the public launch of the Step Forward comprehensive campaign on October 17, 2019, to get an inside look at the campaign’s goals.

Upcoming dates and locations:

  • February 21-29: Fort Meyers, Sarasota, Tampa and Orlando, Florida
  • March: Fort Wayne, Indiana
  • June:Chicago and Peoria, Illinois
  • June: Houston, Austin and Dallas, Texas
  • August: Adrian and Grand Rapids, Michigan

Additional cities and dates will be coming soon; more information is available at
