Dean of Student Development
Jesse Brown has been at Huntington University since the fall of 1999. After graduating from Valley Forge Christian College with a bachelor’s degree in Bible and from Eastern College with a master’s degree in counseling, Jesse and his wife moved from Akron, Ohio, to Huntington and he began working at the University as the resident director of Meadows and Miller Halls.
Director of the Horizon Leadership Program
University and Youth for Christ
After serving in this role for four years, he became the assistant dean of students (and now associate dean) which means that he oversees all of the residence halls. The best part of his job is that he has the opportunity to work with the resident directors (full-time and part-time professionals) and the resident assistants (student leaders on each floor).
During his time at HU, Jesse has helpful in developing the Horizon Leadership program by serving as the Chair of the Diversity Task Force. He has also taken several January term trips visiting historic Civil Rights sites in the southern states and developed (with the help of Dr. Kevin Miller and Rev. Keith Reynolds) a spring semester course, “Conversations About Race”. Jesse also serves on the local Harmony Initiative Board which provides leadership to the local community regarding harmony and diversity efforts.
He is the father of four children who absolutely loves to eat in the dining hall and hang out with the college students.
