Our graduates are the most important expression of Whitworth's mission. So we're proud of the university's record of preparing alumni for top graduate schools and successful careers. And our alums tell us they're especially grateful for Whitworth's emphasis on equipping them to connect their deepest convictions to their work and to other major life decisions.
Whitworth graduates seek to change the world, not just their own place in it. They embody values our culture often dismisses as being mutually exclusive: curiosity and conviction, grace and truth, and responsibility and empathy. Our alumni are all over the map -- in the best possible ways:
