The Wendt Character Initiative releases several publications each year, with the goal of accomplishing our mission to "engage the university community in a cooperative and spirited effort to foster intellectual understanding of and personal commitment to leading lives of purpose and excellent moral character."

Our periodical Journal, Character and . . . gives UD and UDTS faculty members the opportunity to read, discuss, research, and write on the intersection of character and contemporary issues. Meanwhile, our newsletter keeps readers up-to-date with what we do on campus and in the community.
