Whitworth President Scott McQuilkin
Whitworth's mission is to provide our diverse student body an education of mind and heart, equipping our graduates to honor God, follow Christ and serve humanity.
Whitworth's enduring mission is the center of everything we do: our teaching, mentoring, ministering and programming on behalf of students; our stewardship of university resources; carrying out our commitment to our people; communicating Whitworth's educational experience; and more.
In response to opportunities and challenges specific to this season, we are implementing a strategic plan that is anchored in our Christ-centered mission. The plan, built through a yearlong collaborative process under the leadership of Whitworth's University Council, focuses our work for 2023-28.
The strategic plan contains 22 objectives organized under four broad goal areas: Innovation & Learning; Human Flourishing; Financial Flourishing; and Story. Through the execution of this plan, Whitworth will hold fast to its Christ-centered identity while advancing in a host of programmatic, systematic, relational and financial ways.
As a community, we move forward together with anticipation and confidence in advancing our service to our students, our faculty and staff, our alumni and supporters, our external constituencies, and to the God in whom we have our life, breath and being.
