Messiah College is a private Christian college of the liberal and applied arts and sciences located in Grantham, Pennsylvania, near the capital city of Harrisburg. Messiah's mission is to "educate men and women toward maturity of intellect, character, and Christian faith in preparation for lives of service, leadership, and reconciliation in church and society."
Serving 2,900 students and over 180 academic staff, Messiah College has traditionally managed its web presence using limited developer resources. By implementing the Jadu Web Content Management System and XForms Professional products, the college will radically transform the way the publishing and administration of the website is managed.
“We aim to deliver a rich online experience for our Students and Teaching Staff ,says William Strausbaugh, CIO of Messiah College. “We selected Jadu because their innovative software provided a great technical fit for us. Their focus on Higher Education and their approach to implementation also impressed us.”
“We are very proud to be working with Messiah College in partnership. They have a great team and we look forward to delivering an outstanding web experience for the college and its students,” says Suraj Kika, CEO of Jadu.
Jadu recently announced a partnership deal with SunGard Higher Education, who now re-sell the Jadu CMS internationally. Messiah College becomes the third SunGard Higher Education Banner user to join the Jadu partnership alongside The University of Leeds and The American University of Sharjah.
Messiah will begin implementation of the Jadu platform in the fall of 2011.
