People - Faculty & Staff Support
Ask a Witt grad – “Who made a difference in your Tiger education?” and they will likely respond – “the faculty”. Ask a faculty member – “What gets you out of bed in the morning?” and many will respond – “the students”.
Everyone has at least one professor who inspired, encouraged, and challenged him or her to go the extra mile; and these faculty members are proud to pass on their light and help guide these students in finding their own path. At Wittenberg, we believe our faculty make a big difference and we are proud to provide opportunities for them to continue in their professional development – whether that is through presenting at a conference, attending continuing education classes or traveling with students to collect evidence for their research.
Through an application process and peer evaluation, the Faculty Development Fund provides additional funding to faculty members as they seek to attend conferences, pursue educational projects, and grow in their professional knowledge.
