Since its founding in 1845, Wittenberg has insisted on providing an education that envelops the individual’s capacity to think, read, and communicate with precision, understanding, and imagination. A leader in pushing the boundaries of the liberal arts by offering such non-traditional liberal arts programs such as business, computational science and teacher education certification, Wittenberg has attracted students with adventurous spirits for generations and has consistently developed alumni who desire to change the world.
Students here will find a place that embraces the life of the mind, and one that promotes high standards of artistic, scholarly, and scientific inquiry among both students and faculty. For more than 160 years, Wittenberg has helped students discover an enduring passion for learning, which requires risk-taking, persistence, reflection, and high ethical standards. It is the university’s greatest hope that when students graduate, they are forever changed and go on to share their talents to make a difference in the community and around the globe.
