ITS upgrades on Thursday

Users will experience intermittent internet and network connectivity. Services impacted will be internet connectivity, InfoCenter, my.wartburg.edu, telephones and local network connectivity.


Ballrooms used for student dining

Students begin returning to campus Aug. 9, and at that time both the Heritage and St. Elizabeth Rooms will be used exclusively for student dining as the space is necessary to allow for adequate social distancing. If you have any questions about this, please contact either Marty Johnson, director of dining services, or Jean Buckingham, interim events manager. If you have an event that is scheduled in either of these rooms during the Fall Term, please contact Jean to make other room arrangements.

Dr. Michael Gleason, the Irving R. Burling Distinguished Professor in Leadership, co-authored an article titled “Mentoring students in high-stakes roles: Lessons from the Leadership Challenge Event” in the "Pause for Pedagogy" section of Interface: The newsletter of the International Leadership Association.


Wartburg faculty Dr. Kelly Faga, Dr. Mike Bechtel, Dr. Maryam Rod Szabo and Dr. Stephanie TeKippe have published an article, "The 3CM Approach: A Pedagogy Based in Theory and Experience to Move beyond the 'What' into the 'How' toward a Pathway of Lifelong Learning and Teaching," in The International Journal of Pedagogy and Curriculum. The study explored teacher perceptions of strategies being utilized in schools, teacher training, professional development, strengths and weaknesses, and impact, with the aim of discovering a pathway of teacher development for life-long learning and effective teaching.
