Why Whitworth

Professors who know and are known by their students

Whitworth faculty members are dedicated Christian teachers and distinguished scholars. Our professors come from diverse Christian traditions, intellectual disciplines and socio-political perspectives, but they are united in their commitment to mentoring students and modeling the integration of faith into all aspects of life and learning.

At Whitworth, we believe the best learning occurs within the context of relationship. With a student-faculty ratio of 11:1, Whitworth is a place where professors know and genuinely care about their students. Conversations begun in the classroom often carry over into the dining hall, local coffee shops, residence-hall lounges, and even professors' homes. "Dine with a Mind" is a popular program that allows students to invite a professor to coffee and conversation on campus at no expense.

Whitworth's professors provide individual attention, vocational mentorship, and high-caliber instruction that prepare students to be accepted to and excel in competitive graduate programs, to succeed in their careers, and to chart a fulfilling path for their lives.
