Off-Campus Programs

Mission Statement: A division of the Whitworth Office of International Education, the Whitworth Off-Campus Programs Office (OCP) serves as an integral part of the Whitworth University academic experience by offering a range of domestic and international programs that provide opportunities for study, service, internship and other types of experiential learning. OCP provides comprehensive support for the development and implementation of faculty-led programs, exchange programs and other partner program opportunities aimed at enhancing students' global learning and cultural competency.

Special Announcement: Study Abroad & COVID-19

All domestic and international off-campus study programs are canceled for spring semester 2021. Additionally, all May Term faculty-led programs, both domestic and international, are also suspended. We are working closely with affected students and faculty leaders to support the logistical and financial needs associated with these program cancellations.

Whitworth Cabinet has approved the continuation of third-party off-campus programs for summer 2021. This approval is contingent upon the continuation of favorable conditions. Whitworth Off-Campus Programs staff will maintain regular monitoring of program sites and COVID-related factors to ensure viable program delivery.
