A recognized cosplay guest at East Coast comic conventions, her costuming has been featured on the cover of Cosplay Culture magazine and in numerous geek media sites. Sharon is an admin for SheProp!, a prop making and costume forum exclusively for women costumers and makers. She is also an admin for Full Figured Cosplay, a body positive Cosplay and Comics™ page dedicated to celebrating cosplay inclusivity and diversity.

Retirement recognition for Rhonda and Jake Jacobsen

After serving as educators, scholars and faculty leaders at Messiah College for the past 35 years, Dr. Rhonda Hustedt Jacobsen, professor of psychology and recent director of faculty development, and Dr. Douglas (Jake) Jacobsen, distinguished professor of church history and theology and coordinator of Christian scholarship, have announced their planned retirement at the end of the 2018-2019 academic year.

Rhonda began her career as a professor of psychology and became the director of faculty development in 1996. In her more than two decades in faculty development, Rhonda served as a support, resource and advocate for faculty scholarship at the College and provided leadership for both new faculty as well as more seasoned Messiah educators.

In addition to his position as distinguished professor of church history and theology, Jake has served for many years as the coordinator of Christian scholarship and college identity, a role through which he created opportunities for faculty to engage with the enlivening ideas and questions of scholarship informed by Christian faith.

In addition to campus leadership, Jake and Rhonda served as co-directors of the Lilly-funded Clergy Leadership program, have published numerous scholarly books and articles, and been sought-after speakers for conferences around the globe. We are pleased to invite the Messiah community to join us in celebrating their dedication and service to the College on Thursday, May 2 from 3-5 p.m. in Howe Atrium, Boyer Hall. A drop-in reception with hors d’oeuvres is planned at 3 p.m. with a program honoring Rhonda and Jake beginning at 4 p.m.

Campus Climate Action Team

As you may recall, Messiah College conducted a Campus Climate Survey in March 2017 and the results were formally presented and disseminated across campus in the Spring of 2018. Click here to see more information on the results presented.

One of the outcomes of the survey was the formation of a Campus Climate Action Team (CCAT), the purpose of which is to provide a more in depth analysis of the results and to make recommendations to College leadership.

The CCAT includes:

  • Dr. Todd Allen (special assistant to the president and provost for diversity affairs, and professor of communication) and Inger Blount (director of human resources) as co-chairs
  • Bryan Brunk (wrestling coach)
  • Meg Jones Hoover (career coach)
  • Asha Early (sous chef)
  • Dr. Jim LaGrand  (director of the College Honors Program and professor of history)
  • Allan Matthew (director of graduate enrollment)
  • Hannah McBride (violence prevention coordinator).

Specifically, the CCAT has been charged with focusing on the five priorities identified in the survey results by the President’s Cabinet and developing recommendations for education and programming designed to address the priorities. To that end, the CCAT is partnering with colleagues from the Graduate Program in Higher Education at Penn State University. Led by Dr. Dave Guthrie, a team from Penn State will be coming to campus to host focus groups during the months of March and April. The purpose of these focus groups is to gather information on the intersection of the identified priorities with student /employee experiences and perspectives.

The opportunity to sign up for participating in these focus groups will be sent in the coming weeks. The PSU team is finalizing the exact number of focus groups and numbers participants needed. If you are not selected to a particular focus group or your schedule doesn’t permit participating, you will still have the opportunity to provide feedback electronically. Additional information regarding this process will be forthcoming.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”

The executive board of the South Central District of the PPTA was elated by the turnout.

Emily Farrar, assistant professor of engineering, and two engineering students—Emma Vogan and Castine Donoff—presented their work on designing and implementing a system for 3D printing prosthetics and orthotics in partnership with CURE Kenya at the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) regional conference in Baltimore, Maryland, Feb. 8-9. Vogan won second place and Donoff won fourth place in the collegiate competition for their posters and “lightning talks” on this project. The awards will cover their conference expenses, and their work was highlighted at the SWE awards banquet. These projects are part of the Collaboratory for Strategic Partnerships and Applied Research. Both students plan to travel to Kenya this summer in order to implement their work with the CURE orthopedic workshop staff at the Kijabe, Kenya hospital.

Reminders to faculty from the office of disability services

Welcome back, faculty!

As we begin the 2019 spring semester, the Office of Disability Services (ODS) would like to share a few reminders with you concerning students who receive accommodations through our office.

  • Confidentiality is vital. Legally, if a student is receiving services from ODS, these services must remain confidential. Please handle accommodations in a way that will draw the least amount of attention to the fact that the student is receiving an accommodation.
  • Accommodations are mandatory. After a student has followed the proper procedure to receive reasonable accommodations through our office, it becomes the institution’s responsibility to honor those accommodations to the best of its ability for his or her well-being. Please encourage and never dissuade a student to make full use of the eligible accommodations.
  • Words matter. Although they may be spoken with good intentions, certain remarks concerning accommodations might have negative ramifications. Please try to stay away from comments concerning a student’s actual need for his or her accommodation. A statement like “You probably won’t need the extra time for this test” can put unnecessary (and possibly detrimental) pressure on a student. It is also a violation of the ADA.  Empathy and sensitivity go a long way!
  • Care makes a difference. You have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with our students in a unique way and to be an encourager during their college years.

We invite you to contact us or to stop by if you have any questions about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or about our office procedures. We are grateful to work with you for the benefit of our students and welcome you to visit our faculty-geared webpage to learn more about your opportunities to help:  https://www.messiah.edu/homepage/1007/faculty_support.

We are grateful to partner with you,

Amy Slody, Tony Devine and Deana Baddorf
