The Initiative to Support Our People

"The Westminster Way" shall define the College's culture among and between campus constituencies and shall reinforce our commitment to a "winning tradition" across all endeavors of the College in accordance with our Mission Statement.

WE BELIEVE that Westminster College is an outstanding place to learn, teach, work, and live. Among campus constituents, exceptionally high levels of interpersonal caring, respect, collaboration, and collegiality exist. Yet we challenge and support one another to constantly improve in order to elevate further Westminster as among America's best colleges. This institutional "ethos"must be preserved and nurtured for it represents a key defining feature of the College. This Initiative reinforces the importance of this culture and defines goals to preserve and nurture it as one of our great institutional strengths.
