What Makes Us Special

About Whitworth University

Since 1890, Whitworth has provided "an education of mind and heart" through rigorous intellectual inquiry guided by dedicated Christian scholars. While some Christian universities limit engagement with certain ideas or scholarship, Whitworth encourages tough questions and a fearless search for answers. Although many other institutions deny any role for religion in the pursuit of truth, Whitworth affirms Christian conviction and intellectual curiosity as complementary values. These commitments set Whitworth apart in the higher-education landscape.
