Capital Campaign Engle Center Appeal

Named for longtime Messiah University Trustee and his wife, “Doc” Harold and Mary Elizabeth Engle, the Messiah University Engle Center for Counseling and Health Services provides high-quality physical and mental health care to our community. With the added pressures of physical and mental health demands brought about by COVID-19, the center has been stretched beyond capacity and needs a significant expansion. In the last 3 years, there has been a 200-300% increase in clinic visits and utilization of the health center by our students necessitating this expansion. In the expanded facility, “It will be beneficial for students to come to one place to promote their well-being through either meeting their mental or physical health needs,” said Aubrey Kleinfeld, director of counseling services.

Co-chairs for this important fundraising endeavor are Drs. Joe and Nancy Huerter along with Drs. Emerson ’74 and Ruth Lesher. Joe Huerter and Emerson Lesher also serve as Trustees of Messiah University. Please consider a donation to help us reach our $750,000 fundraising goal by December 31, 2022. Our plan is to break ground on the expanded facility in Spring 2023 and open by Fall 2023.
