2019-20 Campus Updates

April 30, 2020

The COVID-19 situation has forced us to take unprecedented steps, but I remain grateful for the patience, understanding, and flexibility of the people of Wittenberg. This is a difficult time on our campus, in our community, across higher education, and everywhere. As we continue to navigate the uncertainty and adapt to the challenges presented by this ever-evolving global health crisis, it is critical that we take time to highlight the positive and offer thanks.

We all are feeling the weight of the challenges we face. That is undeniable and inescapable. As we take difficult steps forward, I hope we will take a moment to celebrate a few of the positive highlights of this week for our campus community.

The first happened yesterday when we recognized the service milestones of our faculty and staff during a special luncheon. At this time, we also presented our first-ever Torch Bearer Award, the highest honor given to a Wittenberg staff member. Torch Bearer Award recipients personify our motto, mission, and values, and are passionate about the University, our students, and their personal role in making Wittenberg a better place. I am pleased to announce that the inaugural Torch Bearer Award winner is Jules Tignor, coordinator of enrollment operations. Congratulations to Jules and the other nominees, and thanks to the Staff Advisory Council for its role in creating the award. Read More...

Happy New Year and welcome back! I hope you all had a restful and renewing break full of celebrations of the holiday season with family and friends. I am excited to have our students return and bring with them the energy and enthusiasm that always accompany a new semester. This semester and all of 2020 will be a momentous time at Wittenberg as we celebrate the 175th anniversary of our founding back on March 11, 1845. A number of activities and programs are being planned throughout the year. There will be many chances to participate as we honor our past and look ahead with confidence to inspiring more students to find their light at Wittenberg. More information on all the activities will be forthcoming. Read More...

In a few weeks, we will welcome hundreds of alumni back to campus for our annual Homecoming & Reunion Weekend, October 24-27. I know many of you have been involved with the planning for this special time, and I thank you for stepping up to make this time a memorable one for our alumni and friends. Highlights of this year's weekend include commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the CBS Walkout, celebrating the Grand Opening of the Health, Wellness & Athletics Complex, and recognizing several distinguished alumni during our annual recognition ceremony. This is in addition to the many reunions, athletics contests, and gatherings being planned. I would encourage each of you to participate in any and all activities as you are able to do so.

The 2019-20 academic year has begun, bringing with it an exciting energy that will always make this time of the year a favorite time for Sharon and me. I want to thank everyone who played a part in making last week's Move-In Day and Welcome Week a huge success. I know much of the work leading up to this time of the year is often behind the scenes, but I hope the positive sentiments shared by our incoming students and their families remind each of you that those efforts matter -- and make a difference.
