Westmont Downtown: Center for Social Entrepreneurship


The new Westmont Downtown campus brings Westmont College to the heart of Santa Barbara’s business district. Located at 26 W. Anapamu, Westmont Downtown hosts a range of programs, events, and classes to “create opportunities and open direct partnerships with Santa Barbara-based businesses and social agencies,” says President Gayle D. Beebe. The new campus will carry on Westmont’s strong commitment to undergraduate liberal arts education while strengthening the connection between the Westmont community, local alumni, and our Santa Barbara neighbors.

In addition, Westmont Downtown hosts Pepperdine University’s Fully Employed MBA program through the Graziadio School of Business. Pepperdine’s program allows recent undergraduates and working professionals to have the benefits of a top-ranked MBA program that fits in their schedules.
