Wendt Character Initiative
Shaping Character for Lives of Purpose
Character is about excellence as a whole human being in every aspect of one’s life. It’s about being 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 character within the lives of the University of Dubuque's faculty, staff, and students, and to equip them to convey that character to those they encounter.
