Mission

The mission of Westhampton College is to support the whole student, both as an individual and as a valued and engaged member of the communities we build together.  We help prepare our students to lead informed, purposeful lives as they become the best versions of themselves. 

As advisors in matters academic, co-curricular, and social, we seek to:

  • strengthen students in their intellectual and personal development;
  • center diversity, equity, and inclusion; and
  • inspire students to care about and advocate for themselves and those around them.

We believe that community is an action, that all of us have a vital part to play in fostering a thriving and inclusive community.

 

Values

Westhampton College values intellectual and personal growth. 

We support students in becoming their authentic selves through intellectual inquiry, self-reflection, exploration, and discovery.

Westhampton College values well-being.

We encourage students to practice self-care, gratitude, joy, and compassion, to nourish the mind, body, and spirit. 

Westhampton College values community and belonging. 

We actively work to create and sustain communities in which everyone belongs—and feels that they belong.  

Westhampton College values mentorship and leadership.

We embrace and learn from our many identities, backgrounds, and experiences, promote leadership in its varied forms, and celebrate the transformational power of meaningful relationships and actions.
