Christ.  Scholarship.  Service.

President’s Office

Welcome to Huntington University!

My name is Dr. Sherilyn Emberton, and it is my honor to serve as the 13th president of this great institution. Huntington University celebrates a rich history of faith in Jesus Christ, scholarship, and service.

Faith Forward 2022 encourages us to integrate mission and legacy in many ways. Each year, I choose my five favorite examples from our most recent academic year to share with you:

#5: Huntington University hosted its 122nd Commencement, honoring an undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral class of over 300 graduates, including our first class of four-year graduates from the occupational therapy assistant program!

#4: The University launched the public phase of the comprehensive campaign, Step Forward, with $34.9 million raised of the $40 million campaign goal.

#3: The Doctorate of Occupational Therapy program began the expansion to HU Arizona by hiring program staff and reconfiguring facilities.

#2: Foresters won the first-ever NAIA Women’s Indoor Track and Field National Championship. Forester athletics experienced a phenomenal year, with four sports' athletes earning berths in national competition: baseball, bowling, men’s soccer, and track and field.

#1: Huntington University celebrated its sixth straight year of record enrollment with 1,393 students enrolled for fall 2019!

As president, it is a joy to serve such an impactful institution. The 2020-2021 academic year promises to be one of our most exciting yet as we re-open the Huntington Union Building and continue to Step Forward through our relentless pursuit of Christ, scholarship, and service.
