Department & Program Support

Department & Program Support

Having Light, we support the programs and departments that helped shape who we are today.

Why It Matters

Our capacity to “provide a liberal arts education dedicated to intellectual inquiry and wholeness of person within a diverse residential community” requires attracting, enrolling, and retaining well-rounded students with the collective talent, interests, and abilities to take full advantage of all we have to offer -  including 37 majors, minors, and pre-professional programs. These educational departments are the heart of our pursuit of knowledge and what gives Wittenberg graduations an edge - inside the classroom and beyond. 

How We Can Make A Difference

  • You can designate your gift in support of the departments and programs that matter most to you - and you can give to more than one!  
  • As you support the areas you are passionate about, these gifts provide annual operating support to the departments and programs that helped to shape you into who you are now.

Why Right Now

Engaging our Wittenberg community to continue to pass on light through targeted, annual support is central to the Having Light campaign. Alumni giving is a clear sign of affection, appreciation, and affirmation of the value of the education an institution provides. 

Gifts in support of Departments and Programs show current students, faculty, and staff that alumni are behind them, while signaling to foundations and other grant makers that Wittenberg has broad community support.
