Huntington University Arizona has announced the hiring of Jamie Sanfilippo and the promotion of Tiffany Glazier.
Sanfilippo returns to HU Arizona after spending the past few years working for the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities in Washington, D.C. She returns to the university in a brand-new role: dean of Huntington University Arizona.
"Huntington University Arizona holds a special place in my heart, and I am beyond thrilled to return to this exceptional institution in a new leadership capacity,” Sanfilippo said. “Working alongside such dedicated professionals who are deeply committed to making a lasting impact on Christian higher education is an honor. I am eager to contribute my skills, knowledge and unwavering dedication to help shape the future of Huntington University Arizona and build upon its already stellar reputation."
In this role, Sanfilippo, who holds a PhD in higher education administration from Azusa Pacific University and a master’s degree in organizational leadership from Saint Louis University, will be responsible for assessing target student markets, hiring and directing campus personnel, and providing oversight for student recruitment, marketing and student learning.
Sanfilippo will begin this new role effective July 1.
“We are extremely excited to launch the next stage of HU Arizona by adding a dean to oversee our work in Peoria,” said Sherilyn Emberton, president of Huntington University. “Dr. Jamie Sanfilippo, returning to us from her role in the national CCCU office, has agreed to serve as the first dean of Huntington University Arizona. We are blessed to have her talent and enthusiasm as we strategically grow our footprint there.”
