study-abroad-discussedFollowing its strategic plan initiative to infuse the curriculum with international perspective, Wittenberg welcomed four distinguished guests from Wittenberg, Germany, Feb. 9, to begin a dialogue regarding a possible partnership to provide semester-long study-abroad programs for Wittenberg students.

Eckhard Naumann, Lord Mayor of Wittenberg, Germany, Christian Eggert, owner, Christian Tours Europe & Manager of Colleg Wittenberg, Helmut Keitel, architect and president of CAMPUS Wittenberg, and Jean Godsall-Myers, co-director of the ELCA Wittenberg Center, spent the entire day touring Wittenberg’s campus, speaking with university officials, engaging with professors and renewing relations with representatives from the city of Springfield.

For more than 15 years, Wittenberg University has enjoyed a partnership with the city of Wittenberg, and in the 1990s, Springfield also entered into a formal Sister City agreement with Wittenberg, Germany.
