WITT: We're In This Together

Committed to fostering a spirit of respect in all its community members, Wittenberg is providing the following expectations and guidelines as the University moves forward with fall planning amid the pandemic. At WITT, We’re In This Together, and our efforts will only be successful if everyone remains diligent in helping us prevent exposure to COVID-19.

Shared Community Expectations

Whether an employee, student or guest, each person on Wittenberg's campus is expected to abide by a set of expectations and requirements designed to keep our community safe. Wittenberg is daily monitoring guidance from the CDC, the Ohio Governor's Office, and the Clark County Combined Health District, and may shift its proposed course of action and requirements at any time as new information becomes available.

All those with permission to be on campus must:

  • Take personal responsibility to self-identity their health status, including a daily temperature check that must be below 99.9, prior to coming to campus.
  • Maintain personal hygiene, including regular hand washing.
  • Wear face coverings except when in their own private work zones with no one else present.
  • Embrace social distancing standards (six-feet apart) at all times.


Plans for Fall 2020

Senior administrators are meeting regularly, and a special COVID-Response Team has been established to guide the University in the process of re-opening for the fall 2020 semester and operating as safely as possible. At no time will we compromise the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We are preparing for a return to on-campus instruction, but also for other scenarios.

To keep you informed of institutional actions being taken and to answer as many of your inquiries as possible, we are providing a range of informational resources. If you are unable to find an answer to your question, please contact us via email at

Message Regarding Fall Return

May 11, 2020: Wittenberg University has been and always will be a residential educational experience that fulfills its mission and purpose when our community is living and learning on campus. With this as a core component of our foundation, we intend to do everything we can to move forward with resuming in-person classes this fall.

We are making our intent known with the full understanding that our plans must align with guidance from state and federal health officials and agencies. At no time will we compromise the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors, so if we need to shift our planning at any point, we will. We are preparing for a return to on-campus instruction, but also for other scenarios.
