The campus is ready to welcome students tomorrow - what better time to preview Homecoming and Family Weekend 2016! A great line-up is planned, so while you're dropping off your student, make plans to return in October!

Dear Counseling Community and Facebook friends, As we prepare for this new school year, we are excited to launch a few new initiatives this year. Every week we will be spotlighting a student, staff or faculty member on our Facebook page. We are also endeavoring to be intentional about self-care by taking one class day each semester for a day of self-care. We hope to integrate music, art, relaxation and other options throughout the day and all MAC students, faculty, and staff will take part. Additionally, faculty members will be covering a class day for each other in an effort to give each other a ‘day off.’ The rigors of training and working in the field require that we take good care of ourselves and we want to be standard bearers of this effort. So! Stay tuned for spotlights and pictures! It’s a new year and we are ready to launch.

The annual faculty/staff conference brings together approximately 350 members of the campus community, including faculty and staff from EMU at Lancaster at the start of the academic year for fellowship, worship and professional development. The theme of the Aug. 17-18 conference was “Embracing Diversity,” with diversity being defined in its various dimensions as race, faith, socio-economic background, gender, sexual orientation, political beliefs, physical abilities and other identities.

Dr. Christena Cleveland urged faculty, “Do the work. Be last. Leave your turf. That will look different for every person. How do you leave your turf at EMU? How will you, the privileged, move from first to last?" #EMUview

Entering his third year at the helm of the Eastern Mennonite women’s soccer program, Coach Ted Erickson has a lot of confidence in his young squad.

During their orientation yesterday new students met our dean, associate dean, and some of the professors they'll be in class with this year. They toured the Seminary building and the larger EMU campus, and had lunch in EMU's dining hall which included a panel with current EMS students. We're delighted to welcome so many new faces to our community!

Welcoming a new student cohort is a highlight of the academic year. Orientation is off to a great start! @EMU_News

It's wonderful to welcome a new class of seminary students!

David was among nine EMU alumni who joined Mennonite Central Committee - MCC's Serving and Learning Together (SALT) program last year - just one example of an alum using his gifts and degree to serve.

The program structure for the Collaborative MBA is unique, with four participating schools - Bluffton University (Ohio), Canadian Mennonite University (Winnipeg, Manitoba), EMU and Goshen College (Indiana). The third cohort started last week on a two-year journey with a dozen students from six states and three countries.

Your party attendance will help students with significant financial need, especially commuter students, first-generation college students, students of color and non-traditional students, reduce room and board costs, and enable them to attend the program. Thank you for your help!

Dan Lutz and Tim Callahan played in Europe this summer! @EMU_News @EMUadmissions @SIDCVC https://t.co/TazQukSxah https://t.co/cgFRuS4Dqi

The guys were in places like Munich, Innsbruck, Dachau and Venice. Dan said: I went on this trip because I had never been overseas and I thought it would be an awesome opportunity to not only experience a different culture and travel, but to play volleyball at the same time. I learned how to adapt with a new team full of strangers, and some important volleyball tips. Tim said: I had never left the country before and combining the sport I love with the chance to experience the world was hard to pass up. On the volleyball side, I went to try to pick up and absorb anything that I could bring back to EMU to improve our team for the coming years. Besides the learning experience, both said they built some great friendships. Way to go, guys!

#Nursing students travelled to Haiti for a 16-day immersive experience with Midwives for Haiti helping to deliver babies, treat burns, insert IVs for hydration, and administer newborn exams. A tremendous vocational opportunity and transformative service experience, definitely - but personal revelation and spiritual resilience were at the top of the takeaways.
