Shadow and Light

In June 2013, artists and educators from the U.S. and six African countries gathered in South Africa for two weeks of living and creating together. Participants undertook an intensive study of South Africa's history, culture and contemporary reality, and their resulting work appeared in Whitworth's Lied Art Center from Sept. 13-Oct. 28 as Between the Shadow and the Light.

Whitworth Welcomes Zakaria

Fareed Zakaria, host of CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS, was the featured speaker at Whitworth's fall President's Leadership Forum. Zakaria, who also writes for The Atlantic and The Washington Post, authored the international bestseller The Post-American World, along with The Future of Freedom and In Defense of a Liberal Education.

 

Legendary Athletes

During Homecoming Weekend, Whitworth inducted its 27th class into the Heritage Gallery Hall of Fame. Emmanuel Bofa, '10 (track & field); Joel Clark, '07 (football); Jo Sonnett Roberts, '06 (softball); and Todd Sabrowski, '06 (soccer), joined Whitworth's athletics elites in the hall.

Tearing Down Walls

A number of recent incidents in the U.S. have raised racial tensions in our communities and our places of worship. To address these issues, the Whitworth Office of Church Engagement presented a conference, "The Gospel & Racism: Jesus Has Broken Down the Dividing Wall of Hostility," in late October.
