Huntington University has promoted Nate Perry to coordinator of ag operations and external relations for the Haupert Institute for Agricultural Studies. He is a graduate of the university and worked in the admissions office for 16 years, eventually serving as assistant vice president of enrollment. Perry has been involved in the Institute since its beginning and is a current member of the Ag Advisory Council. He also engages in a family farm operation in Michigan.

Perry worked for two years with the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professionals but remained active with Huntington University through the Ag Advisory Council and by serving as an assistant coach for the Forester baseball team.

In his new position as coordinator of ag operations and external relations, he will be responsible for leading community outreach efforts for the Institute, planning events and promoting agriculture programs to prospective students through cooperation with the Admissions Office.

Perry will begin his new role after the first of the year. 

The Haupert Institute for Agricultural Studies opened in the fall of 2015 and promotes a Christian perspective on agriculture, which recognizes the responsibility to be good stewards of God’s creation. The Institute is intended to help meet the growing need for agriculture professionals and offers eight concentrations in agribusiness as well as an agricultural education degree.
