Mind & Heart

Whitworth provides its diverse student body "an education of mind and heart" through rigorous and open intellectual inquiry guided by dedicated Christian scholars. When our students graduate, they are prepared to excel in and influence industries and professions that will test their mettle; to live boldly in a pluralistic society that will challenge their deepest values and beliefs; and to meet the world's needs with sharp minds, moral courage and compassion.

Mission & Heritage

Whitworth equips its graduates to honor God, follow Christ, and serve humanity. This noble calling has been our unifying purpose since 1890.
