Whittier College Delivers "Portal to the World"

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

"In some ways, Whittier College is a typical small liberal arts college:  it has around 1,400 students, small class sizes, a focus on teaching, and a mostly residential campus; but Whittier is one of the most diverse private institutions in the country...one of the few selective liberal arts colleges to be designated a Hispanic-Serving Institution
...and its location puts the resources of one of America's most international cities within easy reach."

So begins a profile, published in the American Association of Colleges & Universities October newsletter, in which Whittier is cited for providing students with a "Portal to the World" through its innovative global curriculum.
