Whitworth University Academic Affairs

The academic affairs administrators and staff serve students by enabling Whitworth University's faculty and curriculum to provide the best possible education of mind and heart.

The office of academic affairs coordinates the work of many people and offices that support and enhance Whitworth University's academic program. Together we help shape a curriculum where tradition and current relevance balance and enrich one another—a curriculum that equips students to make a living while they honor God, follow Christ and serve humanity. We provide services that enable students to construct course schedules that meet their educational objectives. We also provide programs that enable Whitworth faculty to grow as Christian teacher-scholars. We work to continuously evaluate and improve both learning outcomes and stewardship of university resources. As provost, it is my privilege to lead a team of dedicated Christian professionals who care deeply about Whitworth's educational mission.

I welcome conversation with faculty and students about matters related to the academic program. Please contact our office at 509.777.3702 for information about my office hours.
