Mentorship Visit Program (MVP)

March 17-18, 2024

Whitworth University celebrates its students and families with diverse experiences and backgrounds. This program welcomes high school juniors, seniors, and college transfers to experience our campus community through peer mentors and discover Whitworth’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about the academic and student life programs offered at Whitworth. They will connect with our community through mentor groups led by student leaders and meet university faculty and staff who support students inside and outside the classroom. If you are seeking an education of mind and heart that lifts up academic excellence, the integration of faith and learning, and diversity and inclusion, we invite you to register.


Who can participate?

This program is open to high school juniors, seniors and current college students. We specifically encourage Black, Indigenous and/or People of Color (BIPOC) students and first-generation college students to apply. Parents are welcome to attend (see FAQ for more parent information).


Registration is free and will include the following:

  • Students: Dinner on Sunday and breakfast and lunch on Monday
  • Guest: Dinner on Sunday and lunch on Monday 

What does the MVP event include?

This is a two-day campus visit program that includes the following activities:

  • Peer mentor circles
  • Campus tour

Where is Whitworth University and how do I get there?

Whitworth University is located 15 minutes north of downtown Spokane, Wash. We are committed to reimbursing a significant amount of travel expenses for every admitted high school senior and transfer student who participate in a full-day or overnight visit event following their admission for fall 2024.
