Fact Book

The Fact Book documents the academic, financial, and institutional characteristics of Messiah University for the academic year through time. The Fact Book largely captures the state of the institution during the "Fall Snapshot," which occurs after the 10th day of classes. The Fact Book also collects the information needed for federal and state reporting, as well as publishing-house surveys. Although the Fact Book is compiled by the Institutional Research Office, it draws upon and reflects the contributions of all academic and administrative units of Messiah University.

The Fact Book is intended to be a consistent reference for describing Messiah University's institutional characteristics, the institutional context, and trends. It serves as an aid for internal projects and strategic planning, and it should be considered a source for responding to requests from external agencies. More detailed information is often available by contacting the Institutional Research Office.
