Westmont Downtown,
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
  • Entrepreneurs
  • 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.
