Multicultural Visit Program (MVP)

April 4, 2022

Whitworth University celebrates its students and families with diverse experiences and backgrounds. We invite high school juniors, seniors and college students 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, and diversity and inclusion, we invite you to apply.

  • Peer mentor circles

Where is Whitworth University and how do I get there?
