HUNTINGTON, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Huntington University is reporting for the first time in school history an enrollment above 1,400 students. The school says 1,402 students are enrolled this year, up from 1,300 in 2016. 

“We are thrilled that our enrollment has reached the 1,400 mark. We celebrate every student because it’s a life and they are a future leader, but surpassing a marker like 1,400 is a special moment for the campus community,” said Daniel Solms, vice president for enrollment management and marketing.

The university is also reporting its eighth consecutive year of more U.S. minority student enrollment, which is now 16% of the university’s total student enrollment. 

“We are so excited about the opportunity to provide a record number of students with access to Christian higher education at Huntington University,” said Dr. Sherilyn Emberton, president. “Our entire campus community, at all three geographic locations, worked diligently through the pandemic recess to offer the residential educational experience for our students in fall of 2020.  Growing our institution remains a key pillar of our strategic plan, Faith Forward 2022.”
