A Warm Wittenberg Welcome

Sharon and I are excited by your engagement with Wittenberg University. Being part of our community is an amazing journey, and I am honored to share a few thoughts about our University with you.

Michael FrandsenHere you will find a community that provides an incredible ecosystem of support for students. Our faculty, staff, coaches, and your fellow students go out of their way to look out for you and to partner with you in whatever path you pursue.

You will also be able to engage in an innovative general education curriculum that we call Connections, which includes an opportunity to work with faculty off-campus for an entire week every spring semester. We call the experience FIRE Week, as it provides a chance for students to discover, explore, and find their light through a range of exciting learning options.

Additionally, you will have access to multiple study abroad programs with the most popular being in Costa Rica, Wittenberg, Germany, and now Cape Town, South Africa. Service-learning opportunities also abound, along with a competitive athletics environment.

One thing you will also hear a lot about on our campus is our motto: "Having Light We Pass It On To Others." These eight words have inspired alumni and our campus for generations as they call on us to go beyond the comfortable and into what matters. Graduates embrace our motto in their own unique ways, but one thing unites them all: a desire to serve, to grow, and to thrive.

We believe your dream school should be the one that works hardest to support them. Count on us to do that with you. Welcome to Wittenberg.

Best regards,

Michael L. Frandsen, Ph.D.

Wittenberg University President Michael Frandsen
