17 Jul HU Joining Four Other Schools in a Regional Center
Huntington University is joining four other schools in what is called the Life Science Education and Research Consortium of Northeast Indiana.
The schools will use space on Parkview Hospital’s Randallia campus, near downtown Fort Wayne, as a regional center for a variety of initiatives. They want to develop a world-class center focused on rehabilitation, senior care, and behavioral health.
Huntington University and Trine University (in Angola, Ind.) will begin classes in August 2012. The other three schools will launch in 2013.
Huntington will start these programs at the end of August:
- Master of Arts in counseling.
- Adult bachelor’s degree programs in human resource management.
- Adult bachelor’s degree program in not-for-profit leadership.
- The adult RN to BSN degree program.
A TESOL/ESL certificate program will launch later this year. By the fall of 2013, Huntington hopes to open a master’s and doctoral-level program in occupational therapy.
Trine University will offer new programming (at various degree levels) in healthcare management, emergency management, biomedical engineering, engineering technology, biomedical regulatory affairs, non-profit management, healthcare systems, and physical therapy, plus a biomechanics and movement sciences research center.
Fort Wayne Community Schools, Ivy Tech Community College-Northeast, and the University of Saint Francis are also partners in initiative. Huntington and Trine will locate their programs in the main hospital building.
