From the Institution

Westminster College is an independent, coeducational liberal arts college, related to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). For over 165 years, Westminster has been charac-terized by the excellence of its educational programs and its concern for moral and spiritual ideals and values. Development of the individual - intellectually, spiritually, and socially - is the primary purpose of Westminster. The College views education as a maturing experience and believes the liberal arts heritage offers exceptional op-portunities for development of the individual in today's rapidly changing world. The advancement of Westminster's graduates in a wide variety of careers and professions is evidence of the inherent value and relevance of the liberal arts. Westminster is a community of learning, small enough to encourage the exchange of different ideas and philosophies yet large enough to provide diversity of knowledge, experiences and values. Its residential atmosphere enhances personal interaction. Westminster is proud of its heritage. It was originally founded to promote the spirit and values of Christianity. One of earliest coeducational colleges in the nation, Westminster has been dedicated to "the mental and moral training of youth of both sexes" since it opened its doors in 1852. The first catalog (1853) stated that "no person will be refused admission on account of color, caste, or sex," making West-minster a pioneer in supporting nondiscrimination. Dedicated to these ideals today, the College admits students of all races, creeds, and national and ethnic origins, and accords all students equal rights and privileges. Westminster College is an Equal Opportunity Employer and acts in accordance with applicable laws in all of our hiring and employment practices. No person shall be discriminated against in employment because of race, color, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, veteran's status, religion (except for those positions where religious affiliation is a necessary qualification), or any other classification protected under applicable federal, state, or local law.
