Student Development provides programs and services that foster an inclusive, nurturing, and challenging community; optimizes transformative student learning and leadership; builds a safe and supportive campus; fosters the emotional growth and personal development of students for a lifelong commitment to personal and social responsibility, and makes a positive contribution to the overall student experience.

We’ve moved! The Office of Student Development has moved to a new location on campus. The division, specifically the Dean’s Office, Residence Life, Title IX, Student Conduct, and Housing, will now operate out of the Shouvlin 101 suite of offices, which formerly housed the University’s Graduate and Professional Studies program. All the division’s phone numbers remain the same.

  • Student Complaint System: Wittenberg University maintains a systemic approach to student complaints. Various types of student grievances, complaints, and appeals are handled by multiple processes and departments.
  • Hazing Prevention Resources: Hazing in any form is an inappropriate activity and a violation of Wittenberg's Statement of Mission (to develop the whole person intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically) and is contrary to the purpose of this academic institution and the positive development of individual members of our community.
  • Student Emergency Fund: The Student Emergency Fund was created to assist Wittenberg University students who encounter an unforeseen financial emergency or events which would otherwise prevent them from continuing their education at Wittenberg.

  • Emergency Closing & Procedures: In the case of an emergency or weather-related issues, this website will serve as the primary source for information and updates.
  • Pandemic Flu Response Plan: Because it is impossible to predict the full effects of the emergence of a new flu virus, instead of a detailed action plan, Wittenberg’s plan provides a general framework and recommended actions to be considered in the event of an outbreak of pandemic flu.
  • Resolving Student Complaints Under the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973: Wittenberg University prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. The purpose of this procedure is to provide a prompt and equitable process for resolving student disability discrimination grievances.

Nothing in this procedure replaces any other University policy or procedure.
  • The Student CARE Team: CARE Team is a network of Wittenberg faculty and staff who meet regularly to identify, monitor, and, if necessary provide integrated and intentional support for students.
  • Consumer Information & Disclosures: This resource is provided to meet the requirements for compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), for colleges and universities that participate in federal student financial aid programs.
