Kris Hardy

Director of Web and Digital Marketing

It’s a great honor to work at such an amazing institution. As Director of Web and Digital Marketing, I oversee the day-to-day operations of the University’s externally facing website. It’s my goal to ensure that our website serves the needs of all Messiah’s online audience groups, along with creating an attractive and easy to use online environment where visitors can learn more about the amazing things that are happening at Messiah University.

The website continues to become a more influential enrollment and marketing asset. During my time at Messiah I have focused on helping to improve our enrollment and marketing capabilities on our website. I am very interested in learning more about new web technologies that could take Messiah’s website to the next level. In addition, I strongly believe that data is one of our strongest and most valuable resources in web development. I focus a lot of time on tracking and analyzing data on Messiah’s website in order to make informed decisions and changes that will help improve overall user experience on
