New Center to Examine American Democracy
A new Center for American Democracy (CAD) will help Westmont students understand the unique ideas, ideals, institutions and practices of democracy in the United States. The center began launching programs this fall thanks to a generous gift from a new friend of the college.
Tackling Difficult Issues with Productive Deliberation
Two Westmont professors seek to encourage dialogue on difficult issues in the local community. Deborah Dunn, professor of communication studies, and Rachel Winslow, director of the Westmont Center for Social Entrepreneurship and assistant professor of history, have created the Westmont Initiative for Public Dialogue to encourage citizens to participate in our democracy and work together to solve “wicked problems.”
New Programs in Music, Film Studies and Writing Give Students More Choices
Westmont continues to innovate and respond to students’ interests by adding new programs and more choices that fit well with the liberal arts and prepare graduates for a variety of careers.
