Concerned Black Students

It was in this activist environment that in 1969, black students at Wittenberg organized a Black Student Union under the name of Concerned Black Students (CBS) and began calling for Wittenberg to open its doors wider to black students, faculty, and staff as well as to offer courses in black studies. CBS remains a vital resource for minority students at Wittenberg. Recognizing that role, along with the tradition of activism and involvement, CBS remains committed to cultivating and promoting a campus that embraces diversity and inclusion and is open to all students who share that commitment.
