Changing Ourselves to Change the World!
Students in the School of the Humanities work not only to understand the world but to change the world for the better through undergraduate research. Led by programs such as the Public Humanities Fellows and our Digital Harrisburg Initiative, our students teach school children to love poetry and history through writing poetry based on research about their neighborhoods, work on undergraduate research projects to better understand the history and culture of our region, collaborate with community members to map the stories of their Harrisburg ancestors, and host programming that invites community members to work with us to deepen our civic engagement and our understanding of one another.
Such work transforms our communities, our relationships, and our students. It exemplifies what it means for Messiah University to be a Christian institution working for the common good with our community neighbors.
You can join this work of transformative education for our students and our world by giving generously to support the work of our undergraduate researchers in the Humanities. Help us reach our goal of raising 10,000 dollars so that we can enhance student opportunities to make a difference in the world around them. The first $5,000 given to this project will be matched, doubling the impact of your gift on student research opportunities!
