Faculty Masters Program

The Whittier College Faculty Masters Program combines educational and social programming in an intimate and informal setting and is modeled after similar programs at Oxford and Cambridge universities.

Located in the heart of campus, the masters' houses are each awarded to a faculty-in-residence, whose multi-year assignment is to plan and host a variety of experiences exploring a designated theme.

Faculty Masters' events feature noteworthy professionals—from authors and artists, to musicians and entrepreneurs, to politicians, and scientists—and enable students to interact with, listen to, and often dine with an invited speaker. Guest participants in this program include world-class authors Maxine Hong Kingston and Ray Bradbury, "Supersize Me" filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, advocate-activist Rev. Al Sharpton, and U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Mario Mancuso.
