Westmont Celebrates 75 Years

Westmont celebrates its 75th anniversary during 2012, a relatively young age in the world of higher education. Since 1937, the college has firmly established itself as one of the top 100 liberal arts institutions in the country. During this time, Westmont has earned increasing national recognition for its quality and distinctive mission as an undergraduate, residential, Christian, liberal arts community serving God’s kingdom by cultivating thoughtful scholars, grateful servants and faithful leaders for global engagement with the academy, church and world. We invite you to read about Westmont’s history and discover how generations of faculty, staff and students have faithfully lived out this vision and carried it into the 21st century. As it did in 1937, Westmont continues to educate the whole person, transforming students for a lifetime of service in a variety of careers worldwide, equipping them with the knowledge, skills and heart to meet the great and pressing needs of our time.
