Celebrating Learning 2018

Wittenberg To Host Sixth Annual Event Friday

Wittenberg is excited to host its sixth annual Liberal Arts in Action: A Celebration of Learning on Friday, April 6. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. at the Benham-Pence Student Center and the Joseph C. Shouvlin Center for Lifelong Learning.

This year’s event complements the start of a new chapter in Wittenberg's history as it comes one day after students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends celebrated the inauguration of the University's 15th president, Dr. Michael L. Frandsen, at 4:45 p.m. Thursday, April 5, in historic Weaver Chapel.

Dedicated to recognizing student achievement, the Celebration of Learning showcases student talent from various academic departments and co-curricular activities, as it unites students, faculty and staff around this year's academic accomplishments. Research pursuits, poster presentations and various performances by more than 150 students are expected this year.

New this year are Wittenberg’s Ted Talks, taking place from 11:15 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Alumni Room on the second floor of the student center.

At the conclusion of the Celebration of Learning, the community will gather for the annual Honors Convocation at 4:15 p.m. in Weaver Chapel, followed by an Honors Reception in Gus Geil Lounge of the Benham-Pence Student Center at 5:30 p.m.

Special thanks go to event co-organizers Amy Livingston, H.O. Hirt Professor of History and director of the Honors Program, and Cherie Rebar, professor of nursing.
