Westmont Downtown

An Invitation from Westmont President Gayle Beebe

Gayle D. Beebe, Ph.D., PresidentI hope you will join us for some meaningful “Conversations that Matter.” At Westmont, we believe in engaging the great issues of society and the vexing dilemmas of our global community as we prepare our students to take their place in the world.

This discussion series gives the larger Santa Barbara community more opportunities to hear from Westmont faculty. During these sessions, sponsored by the Westmont Foundation Board, professors from a variety of fields will address current issues facing our society from the perspective of their disciplines.

I’m proud to serve an institution with such outstanding faculty, and I hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to hear them speak and engage in conversation with them.

Goals of Westmont Downtown:
  1. To provide an opportunity for Westmont faculty to speak in their area of expertise.
  2. To engage the community in meaningful, substantive and lively conversation.
  3. To demonstrate the value of constructive dialogue with people of differing opinions.
  4. To demonstrate the commitment of Westmont to the life of the mind and to invite the larger community to join that conversation.
