Office of the President

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 as we celebrate a 125-year legacy of and focus on faith in Jesus Christ, scholarship, and service.

When we begin a new academic year, the University takes a look back at all our accomplishments from the previous year. Here are my five favorite examples from the 2021-2022 academic year to share with you:

#5: Huntington University received a $400,000 matching grant from the Avis Foundation, Inc., to support further growth of the Haupert Institute for Agricultural Studies.

#4: The Doctoral Program in Occupational Therapy enrolled the second cohort at our Arizona location, bringing the total number of annual cohorts across both locations to eight.

#3: Dr. Tony Evans, national speaker and radio host of The Urban Alternative, provided the inaugural address for our 125th Celebration.

#2: The University concluded the Step Forward Comprehensive Campaign with pledges and gifts exceeding the final goal by approximately $17 million dollars (total raised: $56,623,000).

#1: The HU Esports Overwatch team finished second in national tournament play, and our Alpha Chi National College Honor Society chapter kept a perfect record as a Star Chapter of Alpha Chi, one of only two chapters nationally (out of over 300) to receive this award every year since its inception in 1996. 

In my role as president, it is a joy to serve such an impactful institution. The 2022-2023 academic year promises to be one of our most exciting yet as we continue to thrive in our relentless pursuit of Christ, scholarship, and service.
