After its establishment in 1899 by one of the Historic Peace Churches, Elizabethtown College has evolved into the fully accredited, four-year, liberal arts institution it is today. With strong roots in the Church of the Brethren, the College has become internationally recognized for its Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies, as well as various religious and philosophical perspectives and its commitment to leadership, peace and justice. As members of a college community that prides itself on “Educating for Service,” Benowitz and DePuydt divulge Elizabethtown’s historic past and illustrate the ways in which it has influenced the College’s current atmosphere. “The Campus History Series: Elizabethtown College” is available in February 2014.
