Campus & Community Involvement
President Phipps is well connected to Messiah students: they look forward to events at her residence, Orchard Hill, and hang out with her at Pizza with the Prez events in the residence halls. She has 2,400 (and growing) Facebook friends and can be seen in the stands at athletic events, in the audience at theatre performances, concerts, lectures, and chapels, and serving pancakes to weary students during finals week.
President Phipps is a passionate advocate for Messiah College and its community of students, employees, and alumni. She represents Messiah on a number of local and national boards.
President Kim Phipps’ personal involvement in the local community through her board service along with the thousands of hours Messiah students spend in service in the greater Harrisburg area has positioned Messiah College as a socially-conscious, leading institution of higher education in central Pennsylvania.
