University’s Rotaract Club Enjoys Significant Expansion
Established in 2007 with 11 charter members, Wittenberg’s Rotaract Club has more than tripled in size in just three years while undertaking ambitious community service projects and rapidly expanding an innovative mentoring program that has successfully connected a wide variety of local professionals with Wittenberg students.
Wittenberg’s Rotaract members have also immersed themselves in the community, including landscaping at Springfield High School, participating in Campus Leadership Clark County, and raising money for the underprivileged in Haiti and the African Kingdom of Lesotho. The organization’s international focus has gained momentum since Springfield’s Rotary Club made Lesotho its international focus.
Rotaract, which aims to provide young men and women an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills, to address the physical and social needs of their communities, and to promote better relations between all people worldwide through a framework of friendship and service, has more than 7,000 clubs in about 163 countries and geographic areas.
