Return to Campus Plan for Fall 2020

Messiah University is in session this fall with flexible in-person and remote learning options, health and safety protocols and student care and support.


Civil Rights Bus Tour

In keeping with its mission of promoting reconciliation in church and society, Messiah University has sent more than 60 employees and students on a Civil Rights bus tour since 2011. This experiential learning opportunity has empowered participants to better comprehend the history of the United States and the continuing importance of racial reconciliation. The group travels for 10 days visiting prominent Civil Rights sites in the South and meeting participants of the movement while engaging a range of textual and audio-visual materials. Participants are also provided with opportunities to interact with each other, to reflect about implications and to share their insights with a wider audience.
