I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Timothy 2:1-2

NEWS

In honor of the 20th anniversary of events that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, Dr. Brenda Elliott (Department of Nursing), along with the co-editors and two other chapter authors of their 2020 book titled, “Veteran-centered care in education and practice: An essential guide for nurse faculty” were invited by Springer Publishing to deliver a virtual webinar on Sept. 9. The talk titled, “ Honoring military veterans: Four approaches to achieving a veteran-centered nursing practice” focused on the need for nurses to understand military culture, the impact of the MISSION Act on veterans in community healthcare settings, common injuries associated with military service, and strategies for nurse educators to enhance student learning of veteran-centered care in the classroom/clinical.

Educational Technology Services (ETS) is delighted to announce Vicki Swope in the role of help desk support (tier I). Vicki joins Messiah from her previous role as computer and library aide at Northern York High School. Her experience there, assisting both teachers and students with technology support, positions her for a seamless transition as she helps to support ETS’ help desk. Please join us in warmly welcoming Vicki to Messiah.

Messiah University Department of Theatre and Dance presents: The Glass Menagerie

Messiah University’s Department of Theatre and Dance is thrilled to present The Glass Menagerie for our Fall 2021 Black Box production. Tickets are on sale now and are Buy-One-Get-One Free for opening night! You can also follow us on social media to get more behind the scenes information on our cast and the production as we approach the show.

The Glass Menagerie
Written by: Tennessee Williams
Directed by: Ed Cohn

From her cramped St. Louis apartment, Amanda Wingfield dreams of her days as a Southern debutante while worrying about the future of her aimless son Tom and unmarried daughter Laura. With their father absent and the Great Depression in motion, the siblings find comfort in their foibles — alcohol, movies and writing for Tom and a collection of glass animals for Laura — which only heightens Amanda’s anxiety. When a gentleman caller arrives for dinner, the Wingfields are flooded with hope. But it’s unclear if his presence will change things for the better or shatter their fragile illusions.

Poorman Black Box Theater:
Sept. 30 – Oct. 3;
Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 3 at 3 p.m.

Estimated runtime: 2 hours 10 minutes, 10 minute intermission

Stunt card video: take 2!

Yesterday, you received a mass email from President Phipps regarding an upcoming “card stunt” we are planning to perform at Messiah University! If you recall, back in April 2020, Messiah partnered with Kivett Productions out of Orlando, Florida, to produce a unique video that would reveal the new Messiah University logo from our former college logo. Unfortunately, it was cancelled due to COVID-19.

WHAT

The exciting news is that we have rescheduled this card stunt and video (with a new script!) in just a few weeks.

WHO

To make this a success, we will need 200 volunteers from across campus, and that is where you come in! You are invited to be a part of this fun and distinctive video. A key goal of this project is to showcase that it is the people of Messiah that make our campus community such a special place.

WHEN

Filming will occur on Shoemaker Field on Tuesday, Oct. 5, from 9:30 a.m. to noon (rain date: Oct. 6, same time and location). While the actual shoot will not take the entire time, volunteers must be available for the entire window on both days, which will include a briefing by the director, placement of individuals for the card stunt, and the filming itself. Light refreshments will be served for those who participate.

REGISTER

If you’d like to volunteer, please discuss with your immediate supervisor before registering. Supervisors, please make every effort possible to allow employees to participate if they wish.

You may register to volunteer by using this link. Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Confirmation and additional details will be sent to registered volunteers as we near the filming date.

Please contact Sherri Hoffman or Danielle Ran with additional questions.

Staffing updates from Enrollment Management

We have elevated Kristin Thomas’ role to director of admissions hospitality. This new position will sit on the admissions directors’ leadership team, co-chair the new Admissions Visit and Event Advisory Team and direct the development of all visit, event and hospitality programming. She will also continue to give leadership to student workers and the ambassador team.

Kristin has hired Amanda McCarty as our new admissions hospitality assistant. She will be working 1-5 p.m. all year in the admissions lobby. Amanda comes to us from Northpoint Bible College in Massachusetts where she served in a variety of roles in admissions. She is also enrolled in the higher education master’s program here at Messiah.

Given the importance we are placing on attracting a more diverse student body and developing cultural intelligence among our team members as key themes both in our strategic plan and our mission to be reconcilers in Christ, we are thrilled to announce that Sierra Kinslow has been promoted to associate director of admissions, multicultural recruitment. Sierra is a strong leader who is passionate about reconciliation. We are excited to see her guide and influence the Division of Enrollment Management in matters related to recruiting and retaining multicultural and international students and first-generation students.

You may have heard that Chad Muise accepted a head coaching position at Houghton College and that Molly (Janczyk) Bruce has accepted a position working in financial advising with Kingdom Focused Financial Group in Dillsburg, PA (affiliated with Thrivent). They were both valuable members of our team whom we will miss dearly. In their absence, Nate Litman will be adding the coordination of telecounseling to his current responsibilities.

Virgil Angeles has been promoted to coordinator of social media, in addition to continuing in his position as admissions counselor. He will be responsible for the enhancement of our admissions department’s multiple social media accounts with the goal to increase prospective student engagement. He has also transitioned into the role of liaison for the of music, art and design, and theatre and dance departments.

We have hired two recent alumni to fill their admissions counselor positions:
Catherine Arke is a May 2021 marketing graduate of Messiah. She served as a RA her last two years at Messiah and has worked in the Admissions Office through the school year and summers since she was a first-year student. Catherine will serve students who come from York and Adams counties, as well as New England.
• Josh Gerber is a May 2021 graduate of Messiah with a double major in biblical and religious studies and business. At Messiah, he was involved in leading men’s ministry and was a work study student in the BRS department. Josh will serve students coming from Western PA, Downstate NY (including NYC and Long Island), the South and Midwest.

As we are hoping to resume travel this fall, we have hired Jennifer Weaver as our temporary traveling recruiter through November. Jennifer is a 2003 political science graduate of Messiah. After graduating, she attended Eastern Mennonite Seminary and received her master of divinity. More recently, she worked as a residence hall advisor at Lancaster Mennonite School. We are thankful for her representation of Messiah at off-campus events.

As you may have heard, Teresa Stover retired from the financial aid team at the end of July. Congratulations to her in this important decision! She has trained Lori McGill Sarago to take over as financial aid technical coordinator. In the short year that Lori has been with us, she has shown excitement to be working in the Messiah environment, a great willingness to learn and the flexibility to take on new tasks, making her the perfect choice for this role. As we embrace the challenge to make the financial aid process more digestible for students and families, this role will be key in coordinating with the financial aid team, the enrollment management operations team and with colleagues in student financial services to communicate effectively.

Financial Aid is also excited to welcome two new members to their team:
Chris Ackley will serve as financial aid counselor/coordinator of grant processing. Chris joins us from Dickinson College where he was most recently employed as the assistant director of financial aid. Chris arrives from Dickinson with eight years of increasing levels of responsibility in financial aid and will serve our students well through this role.
• Sheryl Sanders will serve as financial aid office assistant for 15 – 20 hours per week. Sheryl comes to us with a robust background in office administration, including time working at Lancaster County Christian School. Most recently, Sheryl has been self-employed as an interior designer.

In all of this, please join me in congratulating Leslie Bencivenga in her promotion to executive assistant for enrollment management. This role and title acknowledge the excellent work Leslie performs in supporting the EM leadership team, collaborating with partners across campus, and working with external firms and vendors to serve our prospective students and their families.

The Campaign for Messiah University: Learning for Life, Transforming the World

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to share exciting news regarding our current capital campaign – The Campaign for Messiah University: Learning for Life, Transforming the World. This campaign supports our vision to educate students for a lifetime of learning opportunities, including engaging our students and alumni beyond the undergraduate and graduate programs to include certificates and enhanced learning courses. This campaign encompasses several broad areas that support our efforts to fulfill our vision. They include: the Messiah fund and scholarship aid, scholarship and program endowments, new facilities, and estate planning gifts.

We have already reached several milestone accomplishments, including the construction of the Larsen Finance Lab, Martin Dining Commons, the Falcon Fitness Center, Sawyer Gymnasium, Jordan Court in Hitchcock Arena, a new lacrosse field, the resurfacing of Anderson Field, and, most recently, the Phipps Admissions and Welcome Center. Further, we have significantly increased scholarship endowment and direct aid resources for our students. In fact, we have received $70 million toward our $75 million goal! Our plan is to reach the goal by December 31, 2022.

The public phase of the campaign launches Thursday, September 16, and we encourage you to follow along with our progress over the next set of months.

Sincerely,

Barry Goodling
VP for Advancement

If you have any questions regarding the campaign, please contact Dr. Jon Stuckey, associate vice president for development, at jstuckey@messiah.edu.

The Messiah University YouTube Channel

Messiah University’s official YouTube channel was launched by the Office of Marketing and Communications (OMC) in 2010 to host the videos the OMC team produced to strategically communicate the story, brand and distinctive programs of Messiah to prospective students and their families (i.e. branding and academic program videos). Over time, OMC expanded the use of Messiah’s YouTube channel to host videos it created that may be of interest to current students and their families, employees and alumni (i.e., Commencement videos, Community Day year-in-review videos). While OMC currently produces a limited number of videos that serve key marketing communication clients, goals and initiatives at Messiah, it does not manage broader video production for campus clients. However, over the past decade, OMC has opened up Messiah’s YouTube channel to house some videos that are produced outside OMC and that meet certain criteria. Criteria for consideration to host a video on Messiah’s YouTube channel can be found here.

Grant awarded to Murray Library

Murray Library, in coordination with the Athletic Training and Applied Health Sciences programs, was awarded a grant from Pennsylvania Grants for Open and Affordable Learning (PA GOAL). PA GOAL is funded through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund and is coordinated through the Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc. The grant will be used to expand database content and access to the McGraw-Hill AccessPhysiotherapy and the FA Davis Athletic Training databases. E-Textbooks within these databases were chosen and will be used in eight selected courses this academic year. Students in those courses are expected to save thousands of dollars in textbook costs due to the availability of these textbooks in these expanded library resources. Use and student survey data will be used for future subscription decisions. The library wishes to thank faculty in these programs as well as the Office of Finance and Planning, and the Office of Development for their assistance in applying for and using these funds to reduce student textbook costs.
