President Sherilyn Emberton

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. In 2012-2013, HU students invested more than 8,400 hours of ministry to people in Northeast Indiana as well as across the United States and the globe. Seventy percent of our students volunteer annually to be difference-makers in their world for events like Fall and Spring Work Days that account for 1,500 service hours.

At HU, we are faith-focused in everything we do and committed to being excellent in all areas of our campus. Our academic programs continue to produce top graduates in such diverse fields as broadcast-fusion media, nursing, kinesiology, social work, performing arts, and core liberal arts fields of English, history, and the sciences. For our degree-completion and graduate students, we support strong programs in nursing, education, counseling and business at three locations in Northeast Indiana and online.

HU students distinguish themselves with honors in many ways, with recent ADDY award winners, NAIA academic student-athlete honors, and Alpha Chi chapter awards.

At Huntington University, we celebrate the concept of the student-athlete. Our sports teams are second to none. HU boasts 53 NAIA All-America honors and 187 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Go Foresters!

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. Our prayer for you will be that He will give you the desires of your heart as you seek His will for your life.
