Students come to Whitworth University not just to be taught, but to learn. They come for an education. Moreover, we recognize that a sound education is not limited to the classroom or formal educational activities. There is another side to the curriculum. The student-life program is the "other side" of this educational process. It is an opportunity to deal with questions like these: "Who am I, and what are my gifts?" "How do I develop durable, trustworthy relationships?" "How do I grow spiritually, and how can I find ways to express my faith in service to others?"
Through the building of mentoring relationships and a wide variety of programs, the student-life division assists students in meeting these challenges, while affirming the growth and change that occur in their lives. Within the division, there are competent counselors, career advisors, resident directors, study-skills specialists, health educators, student-activities advisors, ethnic-minority student advisors, international-student advisors, and a chaplain this personal growth and development of leadership skills.
We invite you to become acquainted with the people and programs of Whitworth University Student Life. We want to know you, and we want you to know us. "In support of the mission of Whitworth University, the Student Life Division prepares students for the future by empowering them to become independent individuals who compassionately engage and effectively serve people and the world around them."
