Houghton Magazine—Winter 2023

Houghton U

Winter 2023

With this issue of Houghton Magazine, we highlight some of the ways Houghton University is moving fearlessly forward in proclaiming the Gospel and equipping scholar-servants for disciple-making, service and leadership in diverse fields and sectors, all in the context of a rapidly changing 21st-century environment.

With Christ as our rock and our foundation, we move fearlessly forward with the relentless pursuit of excellence in every aspect of our being. We pursue excellence in leadership, in service, in teaching and learning, in scholarship, and in Highlander athletics. But we do so not out of vanity or for our own glory but for the glory of God. With Christian humility, Houghton’s students, graduates, faculty and staff continue to lead the way.

This moment in Houghton’s history and the history of Christian higher education demands that we be prayerful and deliberate. To that end, we humbly solicit your continued prayers and partnership in what God is doing in and through us at Houghton University.

Wayne D. Lewis, Jr.
