Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Having Light, we strive to build a diverse and inclusive culture in our community.

Why it Matters

Having Light: The Campaign for Wittenberg University is an endeavor to support all that defines us: the people, who inquire, create, inspire, and compete here; the place, where we come together as a community and welcome others to learn and grow; and the present, when the next generation of Wittenberg graduates learns to pass on its light.  As such, Witt strives to build a diverse and inclusive campus that enhances the living, learning, and working environment for every member of our community.  

How We Can Make a Difference 

  • We can support the The McClain Center for Diversity and Inclusion FundCreated in 2020, this fund allows for enhanced programming for the McClain Center for Diversity and Inclusion. This fund may be used for, but not limited to, student programming, leadership development, and/or other areas of need that have been identified. 
  • We can give to the Concerned Black Students (CBS) Scholarship. Gifts to this scholarship fund can be applied to either a permanent endowment (CBS Scholarship Endowment) or the annual spendable fund.  Both provide financial aid to deserving African American students who have shown demonstrated need, with preference given to students who are active in the CBS organization. 

Why Right Now

Wittenberg is full of students who will thrive here and go on to become responsible global citizens who lead lives of creativity. By building a community of diverse cultures and backgrounds, we strive to encourage ALL students to become their best selves.

It is time for Wittenberg to continue to be true to itself, steadfast in our mission to provide a liberal arts education to intellectually inquisitive, diverse classes of students who pass their light on to the world.
