Mission

The mission of Westminster College is to help men and women develop competencies, commitments and characteristics which have distinguished human beings at their best. The liberal arts tradition is the foundation of the curriculum continually designed to serve this mission in a rapidly changing world.

The College sees the well-educated person as one whose skills are complemented by ever-developing values and ideals identified in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Westminster's quest for excellence is a recognition that stewardship of life mandates the maximum possible development of each person's capabilities. The College thus realizes its mission in men and women who as students:

  • Develop intellectual curiosity and the competencies to reason logically, evaluate critically, communicate effectively, imagine creatively, appreciate and produce aesthetic and creative expressions of humanity;
  • Acquire a knowledge and appreciation of self, society, human cultures, and the natural world, and human relationships to God;
  • Develop and demonstrate moral and ethical commitments to neighbor, society, and the natural world consistent with the understanding of self;
  • Commit themselves to lifelong learning and the acquisition of skill for careers and responsible service as world citizens.
