President's Honor Roll - Community Service

Community Partnerships

Waverly Health Center: Through this partnership with the Waverly Health Center (WHC), Wartburg pre-med biology majors volunteer 30 hours at WHC during their sophomore year. After completing this requirement, they shadow physicians in general surgery, OB/GYN, emergency room and family practice during their junior year. This program gives Wartburg students a leg up as they apply to medical school and provides WHC with much needed volunteer support. For more information please contact Jo Dorrance.

Community Builders: Community Builders is an ongoing collaborative experiential learning project, under the auspices of the Leadership Institute and Education Department, in which Wartburg College students work with youth and senior citizens to meet the mutually reciprocal needs of all those involved. The purpose of this project is to use the assets of community members with different backgrounds and skills to build and strengthen the community they share.
