authentic power to lead

Each student brings a rich perspective — his or her own color — and, at Messiah, those colors are celebrated, appreciated, and, while remaining distinct, are crafted together like a strong and splendid stained glass window

Biology students explore art history, nursing students study practical theology.

Because Messiah professors teach us how, rooted in the context of why, we learn to make deeply considered decisions.

In other words, we learn to be leaders.

As we consider a problem like human suffering from many angles, our understanding deepens. We realize there’s more at stake than learning to expertly perform procedures.

At Messiah, there's a broad field of knowledge that sets an area of expertise within the human context. That perspective gives students a path to wisdom, an ability to make better professional decisions, because they are more critically aware of their impact.

As persons with strong decision-making ability, students find that others call on them to lead.
