Multicultural Visit Program (MVP)

Spring 2022

Whitworth University celebrates its students and families with diverse experiences and backgrounds! We invite high school seniors who come from multicultural backgrounds and/or are the first in their families to attend college for this visit program. 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, diversity and inclusion, we invite you to apply!

Who can participate?

This program is open to high school seniors who have been admitted to Whitworth. We specifically encourage students of underrepresented racial and ethnic populations and first-generation college students to apply. Parents are welcome to attend (see FAQ for more parent information). We recommend that interested high school seniors submit their Whitworth University application first to increase their chances to participate in MVP.

Registration

$10 per student (non-refundable within 48 hours of event). Registration fee includes meals and the MVP program. Financial assistance is available for those who need it. Registration will open January 2022. 

What does the MVP event include?

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

  • Campus tour
  • Admissions and financial aid presentations
  • Student panel
  • Introduction to campus resources for student diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Peer mentor circles

Where is Whitworth University and how do I get there?

Whitworth University is located 15 minutes north of downtown Spokane, Wash. Students coming to campus from at least 250 miles away are eligible to apply for a campus visit travel grant ranging from $50 to $300. Students who plan to fly for MVP should fly in to Spokane International Airport (GEG).

Why should I come for MVP instead of a regular campus visit?

MVP is especially programmed for students of color and first-generation students to address the unique opportunities and resources that exist for them at Whitworth University.

How do I register?

Registration here. Students will be notified whether they have been selected for the program as applications are received, but no later than Feb. 25, 2021. Students seeking a campus-visit travel grant to attend MVP are encouraged to submit the campus-visit travel grant application within the same time frame.
