Huntington, Ind.—Huntington University is actively pursuing a site in Wabash for its EXCEL Program for Adults.
“Huntington University hopes to become a part of the Wabash community,” Perry Collins, director of the EXCEL Program, said. “We recognize that this is a growing community, and there is a need for adults to be able to complete a four-year degree while maintaining their employment.”
Huntington University currently offers EXCEL courses in Huntington and Columbia City. The main campus began the program in 1993, and EXCEL opened its doors in Columbia City in the fall of 2005.
“We will approach the Wabash site in the way we approached Columbia City: looking for a location, advertising, and making our presence known at fairs and with community leaders and service clubs,” said Dr. Steve Holtrop, associate dean for graduate and adult studies.
The EXCEL program has grown from an initial enrollment of 15 students in 1993 to a current enrollment of 145. EXCEL offers five programs: bachelor’s degrees in business administration, accounting, human resource management and organizational leadership as well as an associate degree in organizational management.
