The Center for Public Humanities is rooted in Messiah University’s collective devotion to the humanities. The Center connects the university’s faculty and students to the broader community through meaningful inquiry, conversation, and action.

Digital Harrisburg is a collaboration between Harrisburg University and Messiah University. It is designed to connect the public, researchers, and undergraduate students, giving them all the opportunity to explore the social history of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s capital.
