A nationwide search has culminated in the Martin University Board of Trustees announcing Sean Huddleston as the university’s new president. Huddleston will succeed Eugene White, who announced his retirement in August after six years at the helm of the university, although White will continue as President Emeritus.
Huddleston is currently Vice President for Inclusion and Equity at the University of Indianapolis. He also served as chief officer for diversity at Framingham State University, and a Vice President position at Grand Valley State after holding management positions with Steelcase and Detroit Technologies.
“I am deeply honored and extremely excited to have been selected to serve as the next President of Martin University,” said Huddleston. “I truly believe that its rich history and mission make Martin one of the most important higher education institutions in our region. Dr. Eugene White did a tremendous job leading the institution, resulting in Martin’s being stable and poised for growth.”
Huddleston will begin his new duties March 25.
