To anyone who has lived or learned in the north, Huntington University is most likely a familiar name. Set in an urban background and nestled between lakes and pristine wilderness, Huntington University has been considered home to students, alumni, faculty, staff and community members who have come through our campus doors since its foundation over 50 years ago. While Huntington University’s mission has broadened considerably since its inception, new programs, campuses, services, faculty members, staff, partners and benefits continue to join our family.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to meet many of those individuals whose lasting memories of Huntington University continue to resonate. From current students to former Board members and from institutional partners to event guests, I am always delighted when I run into people who tell of how welcoming, friendly and warm our campus community truly is.
While our humble beginnings are set in Sudbury, Ontario, we are most proud of the fact that today, Huntington University is a name familiar to those living beyond the borders of northern Ontario. In fact, one of the many ways in which we have created opportunities for growth is by attracting qualified and talented scholars as well as extending our vibrant educational programs and services to colleges and universities across the province, the country and overseas. Of course, we could not have done so without the support of outstanding people who together, are building the quality of our programs in research and education and strengthening the linkages with our external communities.
On behalf of the Huntington University community, I encourage you to explore the many programs and services we offer as you browse our new website.
I look forward to seeing you at Huntington University!
Greetings from Dr. Ted Conroy, Chancellor of Huntington University
Welcome to another academic year at Huntington University, a federated campus community and founding partner of Laurentian University – a place that joins all ages, faiths and university disciplines.
As the Chancellor of Huntington University, I am proud to have served this wonderful institution for some years now and plan to continue to fulfill this role in the years that come with all the wonderful people who make Huntington University a great place to learn, live and laugh.
When the university first opened its doors, in affiliation with the United Church of Canada over 50 years ago, its mission – to provide education access and success resonated with all those who wanted to improve their lives and the lives of others through higher education. The many research initiatives, student success stories and community events that continue to permeate our campus are evidence that Huntington University has been faithful to that mission.
The fact of knowing that our family of students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are making a difference in the lives of others, whether through academic achievement or community service is what gives our work meaning and energizes us to build on our successes.
There is one very significant accomplishment that we can all celebrate at Huntington, and that is the spirit that wanders through the halls, offices and classrooms of Huntington, in the upstairs residence, in the downstairs library, in the pristine wilderness that surrounds our campus doors and in the minds and hearts of all those who are a part of our family. If there is a more welcoming, friendly and warm campus community, I have not come across it yet.
