Ed Weber served the Millersville University campus and community as the director of The HUB since 2014. He graduated from Lancaster Bible College with a bachelor’s degree in missions and had more than 25 years of youth and young adult ministry service in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He directed youth camps and conferences, led summer traveling ministry teams and served on staff in churches and parachurch organizations with a vision of impacting the next generation of students.

As the founding director of The HUB, Weber led the formation of The HUB board of directors, recruiting members from local churches, the campus and local community. Embracing the simple vision of “Campus, Community, Mission,” The HUB has worked to expand the impact of the Campus Cupboard food pantry, launch weekly community events and establish two weekly free lunch programs. In 2019, he worked with the School of Social Work to develop the Campus Closet – a professional clothing bank for Millersville University students. Weber also served as a campus minister for United Campus Ministry since 2014 and was a charter member of Millersville University’s Interfaith Council of Ministers (ICM). For the past three years, he served as a coordinator volunteer for ICM, working to formally establish an Office of Faith & Spirituality at Millersville University.

Under Weber’s leadership, The HUB has become a true partner to the Millersville University community, working with directors within the Student Affairs WAAS Team (Wellness, Awareness, Advocacy, and Safety) to serve the needs of students. In the future, The HUB plans to increase its free meal programs, expand student service and internship opportunities, develop opportunities for students to share their art and music talents and provide gathering spaces for Campus Ministry leaders and organizations.

On July 20, 2021, Weber passed away unexpectedly due to natural causes. He was married to his wife, Vicki, for 24 years and was the father of five children.
