“The GO ED. initiative provides opportunities for enquiring individuals to begin their personal quest of spiritual and personal transformation. Our vision is to own and ultimately end poverty, by transforming lives through cultural engagement. It is not our intention to merely provide temporary relief or transient awareness; rather, it’s our desire to leave a lasting legacy by preparing and empowering future generations to make meaningful contributions in the fight to stop all forms of human poverty.”

If you’re interested in spending a semester learning more about international relief and development, or if you just want to hear about the experiences of other students and learn more, this info session is for you! Did we mention there’s FREE PIZZA? So come on over, grab a slice of pizza, and hear all about studying with GO ED! See you there!

Campus Survey

You are invited to participate and offer your insights in a valuable process to improve our campus and community experience.

This Friday, the 24th of February, you will receive a link to take part in a Campus Climate Survey regarding your experiences at Messiah College.

Specifically, we are asking for your honest reflections of how and where you have witnessed or experienced discrimination and/or violent attitudes and behaviors within the Messiah College community.

This initiative is designed to gather information to influence our evaluation and development of programming and services. What you and your neighbors have experienced matters; please use this opportunity to share your story. Surveying is a best practice across institutions of higher education and as we work to better serve our community needs, consistently identifying experiences of discrimination on our campus is a critical process.

In doing so, we seek to identify the best opportunities to enhance our inter-cultural competence, develop targeted prevention initiatives, and provide educational programming that drives our institution’s commitment to being a wholly hospitable community, embracing diversity and ending inter-personal violence.

Students that complete the survey within the first week will be entered into a confidential drawing with a chance to win one of two $100 VISA cards for Spring Break!

You will have until Friday, March 10th to take advantage of this opportunity. We are grateful for your participation in this endeavor.
