Westminster College

At Westminster College, we excel at developing young men and women to be leaders in a global community. This concise statement of our institutional identity, which we refer to as the Columns Commitment, captures the transformation that takes place for students at Westminster College between the Columns - from freshman convocation to senior commencement. It is a deep, internal, and collective understanding of what we do best. The Columns Commitment expresses succinctly what we stand for, our enduring sense of mission, vision, goals, and values, and it gives focus and direction to everything we do at Westminster College.
