a Semester in Social Entrepreneurship
The Westmont Downtown Program brings Westmont students off the hill for a semester to engage with the Santa Barbara community. A "global" program based in Santa Barbara, the off-campus semester unites the strengths of global, liberal arts thinking with local engagement. As such, program students are equipped with the necessary skills and experiences to act as:
- Social innovators
- Change makers who seek the global good
The program also serves as a hub for those committed to social transformation and entrepreneurship. We host a range of speakers, events, and conferences that promote social impact.
