Wendt Center Update

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others,” challenged Mahatma Gandhi.  UD as a whole and the Wendt Scholars Program in particular accept that challenge. Serving others is a hallmark of the Wendt Scholars program as the students commit to completing at least 15 hours of volunteer work each semester. Service learning is woven into the UD student’s curriculum, and athletic teams also serve the community. Developing lives of purpose is not just a slogan here! Click here to read more
