Office of International Education
The heart of Whitworth University's internationalization efforts is the Whitworth Office of International Education (OIE). The OIE supports the strategic internationalization goals of the institution and drives growth and innovation in the areas of global recruitment strategy, international student services, study abroad/away, global partnerships and intercultural programming. The Whitworth Office of International Education is located in Hendrick Hall.
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.
