Members of the Wittenberg University community joined together for "A Day of Respect," Nov. 21, in connection with the Rise Above Campaign. Students, faculty and staff donned orange T-shirts and ribbons to show support for diversity. Professor of Philosophy Don Reed encouraged dialogue on social media as part of the day using the hashtag #OneWitt.
Below is a sample of the engagement on Wittenberg’s campus during this inaugural “Day of Respect.”
"One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say." -Bryant H. McGill #OneWitt
