PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
Wicked problem challenge voting
Wicked problems are not necessarily evil. They are the most difficult challenges of our time and require a different type of thinking. More than 100 Wartburg students thought about it and submitted 60 problems with ideas for tackling them. Which problems do you believe are worth it? Posters can be viewed on the second floor of Luther Hall, across from the Presidents’ Hall of Fame wall. Vote early, vote often, but only once a day. Voting closes Wednesday, Feb 28, at 11:59 p.m. Click here to vote. 
Community Response website goes live
The Community Response Team was assembled at the beginning of this academic year to ensure meaningful and transparent responses to incidents of bias that impact the campus community. Since then, the team has met regularly to discuss its charge as well as recent events that threatened our campus culture. In an effort to be more transparent, this website will be updated as needed to reflect how these incidents are being handled by the college. To ensure that the college is doing all it can to make Wartburg a safe and inclusive community for all, the Community Response Team encourages all students, faculty, and staff to report incidents of bias impacting a Warburg community member to Campus Security.
Diversity and Inclusion website updated
The college continues to work to make Wartburg a more inclusive community, and one small step we have taken is to update the Diversity and Inclusion website to ensure that all are aware of the work being done behind the scenes and the resources available to students, faculty, and staff interested in enhancing inclusivity on our campus. For more information about how to get involved, contact Student Life at 319-352-8260. In addition to the work already being done, a campus climate survey centered on impressions and experiences with diversity and inclusion is expected to be conducted before the end of the academic year.
RecycleMania is here! 
Wartburg is participating in RecycleMania, an eight-week nationwide recycling competition. During the competition, participating schools are required to track all landfill-bound waste and diverted materials that go out of their campus. Activities are also planned on campus to help inform students about sustainable living. To help Wartburg be successful, the Sustainability Office encourages students and staff to properly recycle. For more information, please visit “Wartburg Sustainability” on social media.
