Wendt Character Initiative Shaping Character for Lives of Purpose
Character is about striving for excellence as a whole human being in every aspect of one's life. It is about aiming to be the best person one can be - being all God created us to be. Our goal is to be excellent persons:
- People of integrity whose lives are characterized by truthfulness, honesty, and stewardship;
- People of justice who treat all people fairly, respect diversity, and practice Christian love;
- People of compassion who live by the Golden Rule in service of others.
The Wendt Character Initiative seeks to promote a culture of excellent moral character.
Join us on Monday, October 25, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., for our Fall 2021 Wendt Character Lecture, titled "What the World Needs Now" and delivered virtually by Kaitlin Curtice. Curtice, an enrolled citizen of the Potawatomi Nation and a Christian, offers a unique perspective on faith and justice within the church as it relates to Indigenous peoples.Character Lectures
