Messiah University's response to COVID-19

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


Why ELI?


The extent to which experiential learning is valuable to one's personal, professional and community development is dependent upon a systematic process that facilitates one's ability to synthesize, reflect on, connect to, and articulate the value to a target audience.  

At Messiah College, we proudly deliver high quality experiential learning in several forms, merging the curricular and co-curricular experience for students.  The Experiential Learning Initiative (ELI) allows us to take experiential learning to a new level by giving every student the opportunity to cultivate greater connection to and application of their learning to various real world contexts.  As a result of participating in an ELI experience, students will learn the practice of tangibly articulating the impact of experiential learning on their personal and professional development.
