Virginia Living Magazine Names Emory & Henry One of Virginia’s Top Schools & Universities in 2023

by Billy Chandler

Emory & Henry College has been named one of Virginia’s Top Schools & Universities in 2023 by Virginia Living magazine.

Each year the Virginia Living magazine scours the latest news from schools around the Commonwealth and publishes an 18-page guide to offer the “most comprehensive and up-to-date overview of schools around the state” (Virginia Living, Mathews et al., 2023). This year, the list appears in a special annual section titled “State of Education 2023.”

In the issue, Emory & Henry College is highlighted for its new Paul Adrian Powell III Student Success Center, first-year advising and experiences, academic success coaching, disability services, tutoring, counseling services and mental health resources. Over the past decade, Emory & Henry has added new master’s and doctoral programs in health sciences, education and business to its liberal arts bachelor’s degree offerings.

Emory & Henry has seen an abundance of success in 2023, including the recently reviewed and approved 2023-2026 strategic plan, “Elevate in Excellence,” which includes a status change from a college to a private regional comprehensive university to be fully implemented as Emory & Henry University by Fall 2024. The College has also joined the South Atlantic Conference (SAC) and is in the provisional status of moving to NCAA Division II.

Emory & Henry offers more than 90 majors and tracks as well as master’s and doctoral degrees in education and healthcare. Additional advanced degrees will be added in nursing and business in 2023 in an online/hybrid format. Additionally, through the new van Vlissingen Center for Career and Professional Development, students receive support for internships, job searches and more during their time on campus and beyond graduation ultimately focusing on student success and satisfaction that lead to improving the region and beyond.
