Students in Zambia
Through an extensive study abroad program and relationships with regional and international partners, Messiah College has been extending its outreach beyond the borders of its Grantham campus for many years.
In particular, the College extended its borders in several strategic ways:
- By forging a partnership with Temple University which allowed for students to experience urban life by living in Philadelphia with other Messiah students while taking courses at Temple. This partnership was the first such affiliation of its kind between a state-related university and a private Christian college.
- By establishing a relationship with Daystar University, a Christian liberal arts college in Kenya, to provide Messiah College degrees to African students who complete an accredited program at Daystar.
- By providing numerous opportunities for students to experience a foreign culture through study abroad. What originally started as a small program is now ranked eleventh in the nation for the number of students studying abroad.
