Koch Hall Renovation
Creating a space for creative, engaged learners

Wittenberg University is proud to embark on the momentous renovation of Koch Hall.  With construction slated to begin in the second half of 2020, the Koch Hall renovation will provide more welcoming, contemporary, and inspiring classrooms and studio spaces, to enhance the student learning experience.  This renovation will also update Koch’s internal systems, including mechanical, electrical and HVAC – transforming an iconic building into a modern facility that will serve generations to come.


Thanks to a lead gift from Sarah Hagen McWilliams ('88) and her father, Tom Hagen, three quarters of the funding needed for this renovation is already secured through philanthropic support.  In honor of her commitment to the Koch project, fellow Campaign Steering Committee members salute Sarah with a combined giving of $8,706.75 on #Commit2Witt.  


Today, we ask you to #Commit2Witt with a gift toward the Koch Hall Renovation. Join us, as we revamp this historic piece of campus into a state-of-the-art space where more students, majors, and community members will develop into creative, engaged learners in the visual arts.
