program overview


in 1986, then president william kinnison joined campus compact in order to promote public service on college campuses. a volunteer program, called "doing our share" was established and by november boasted 200 participants. in the spring of 1988, wittenberg established a community service graduation requirement. one of the aims of community service is to create an awareness of the needs of others and to develop more compassionate human beings who are able to respond to these needs. in order to help students achieve these goals, wittenberg will place them in an environment that will develop their awareness of social responsibilities (faculty minutes, 2/4/89). through the years, refining changes improved wittenberg's service effort. significant among these was the faculty vote in the fall of 2000 to create the course community service 100 (cmsv 100).
