Welcome to the Office of the Provost

Mark Sargent

As Westmont's chief academic officer, I am honored to work with Westmont's outstanding faculty, staff, and students.

One of the nation's foremost Christian colleges, Westmont has long been grounded in the evangelical tradition and is strongly committed to the liberal arts. Faculty value academic rigor and energetic scholarship, and they enjoy the wide exploration of ideas across many fields of study. They are also eager to help build connections between a life of faith and spiritual devotion and a life of inquiry and analysis. In the classroom and beyond it, students will have opportunities to learn and grow together, not only at our Montecito campus but throughout the world. With small class sizes, students have many chances to get to know their professors as teachers, mentors and scholars. Our desire is to help students prepare to serve God with faith, compassion, imagination and wisdom.

On the left there are links that inform you about many aspects of Westmont's academic program.  Please feel free to contact the Provost's Office if you have questions about academics at Westmont.
