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 received a million dollar award from the Lilly Endowment, Inc. for further growth and development of the University’s health sciences program.

#4: The University continued the public phase of the comprehensive campaign, Step Forward, with $40,383,481 million raised of the $40 million campaign goal.

#3: The Doctorate of Occupational Therapy program enrolled the first class in HU Arizona in January 2021.

#2: Indiana’s Governor Eric Holcomb addressed the campus as part of the ribbon cutting of the new 10,000 square foot Don Strauss Animal Science Center.

#1: Huntington University celebrated its seventh straight year of record enrollment with 1,402 students enrolled for fall 2020!

As president, it is a joy to serve such an impactful institution. The 2021-2022 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.
