Goal 3: Prepare Whitworth students to be global citizens

Our students live in an increasingly interdependent world. They must be able to cross international boundaries and navigate politics, cultures, economics, religions and languages with skill and understanding if they are to serve and lead in an ever-evolving global community. Whitworth will equip its students with the knowledge, skills and insight they need to thrive as global citizens.


  • Expand opportunities for students to experience and explore cultures throughout the world, leading to an increase in the percentage of undergraduates who study abroad from 43 percent to 70 percent.

  • Increase opportunities on the Whitworth campus for students, faculty and staff to gain international perspectives by interacting with and learning from people from all corners of the world.

  • Establish ongoing assessment of study-abroad programs to ensure consistent quality and clear connections to Whitworth's educational goals.
