I married Jimmy Lee Hardwick (’81) in 1982. We both taught in Christian schools initially; then I returned to school to complete B.S. and M.A.Ed. degrees in special education with intensive research in autism. I taught in public schools before accepting a position as an autism consultant with UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, Division TEACCH. Jim and I have three beautiful children, Christine, Luke, and Katie. Jim suffered from juvenile diabetes his entire life. My family and I ask for your prayers.
Emmanuel College has always been vitally concerned with the promotion of good health for its students.

Greetings! As Vice President for Academic Affairs, we thank you for your interest in Emmanuel College, and pray that the Lord will guide you in your college decision.
Emmanuel has a number of majors from which to choose (see the majors as listed by department on this web site), and the faculty who teach here are not only professionally qualified, but among the most caring, nurturing group of faculty with whom I have ever been associated. They take the mission of the College to integrate faith with learning seriously and strongly desire you to fulfill God’s call for your life and be all you can be for Him.
Should you have any questions about the college and in particular, its academic programs, please feel free to call or email me. I welcome your inquiries.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
John Henzel, Jr., Ph.D.
Vice President for Academic Affairs
