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 our faith, scholarship, and service in many ways. I chose my five favorite examples to share with you…
#5: Huntington University opened the 30,000-square-foot Center for Digital Media Arts in Peoria, Arizona, this fall. Digital Media Arts programs continue to enroll the largest number of students at Huntington University, and the new opportunity in Arizona will enhance these programs both for new student enrollment and student study exchanges between faculty and sites.
#4: Annual contributions to the University reached a seven-year high with annual gifts totally over $5 million.
#3: The doctorate of occupational therapy program (OTD), located on HU’s facility in Fort Wayne, continues to be recognized for excellence, as evidenced by a recent ranking of #1 by the student peer review for occupational therapy students nationwide.
#2: Huntington University’s chapter of Alpha Chi was recognized for the 20th consecutive year as a Star Chapter, one of only four in the country to have achieved that recognition.
#1: Enrollment for 16-17 will be at an all-time high with 1,300 students taking classes in Huntington, Columbia City, Fort Wayne, Peoria, Arizona, and online.
I’m so proud of everything that HU has done and is doing! 2016-17 already shines as a great year, and we look forward to seeing what the Lord will continue to do in and through HU.
Our prayer at Huntington University comes from Psalm 90:17. Pray with us that God will continue to show favor on us and to establish His work with our hands. And our prayer for you will be from Psalm 37:4 that He will give you the desires of your heart as you seek His will for your life.
Sherilyn R. Emberton, President
