Messiah College President Kim Phipps announced today that Messiah University will be reopening in August for an on-campus, in-person start to its undergraduate fall session. President Phipps shared the news with students, parents and employees via video and a written communication (see below).
Campus administrators and educators have been collaborating with local healthcare systems and authorities on a reopening plan that places health and safety at the forefront, focuses on optimal student earning—and complies with state, CDC and other public health standards. The president’s initial communication shares details related to an adjusted fall undergraduate academic calendar, course delivery, student housing and dining, on-campus healthcare and other information. Additional details will be posted on this blog as they are finalized in the weeks ahead. The president will also announce more information on June 8 about Messiah’s School of Graduates Studies fall calendar and student experience.
