Innovation at Whittier


Whittier College mirrors the diverse global society in which we live, attracting students from every socioeconomic tier, ideological perspective, religious and social background, sexual orientation, gender identity, and from 35 states and 27 countries. 

This rich combination of experiences is what makes Whittier such an exciting place to learn, grow, and innovate. All too often, however, diverse experiences also bring inequity. Therefore, Whittier is committing itself to ensuring success for every student, not just some.

By challenging ourselves to think differently and craft innovative solutions to higher education's most critical problems, we'll ensure that Whittier College can continue to be a model for the nation, innovating for the world.
