| Dear Friends:
A unique aspect of Winthrop University’s role as one of the nation’s acknowledged leading public universities is its legislative mandate to be a “first-class institution of higher education” offering an educational experience “as the progress of the times may require.”
Consistent with our presence in one of the Carolinas’ fastest-growing and most progressive metropolitan regions, Winthrop fulfills this mandate by linking our values and traditions to the ever-evolving demands of modern times. Through that commitment, Winthrop over the years has created:
- a dynamic educational experience specifically designed to guide students as they develop their personal capacities to live, learn and lead in a rapidly changing global society, and
- a related array of technologically contemporary facilities set amidst an historic campus of exceptional beauty -- all specifically designed to provide an environment that encourages both intentional and casual interactions of engaged students and national caliber faculty and staff in their learning community.
While accustomed to receiving numerous national accolades for our sustained high performance, we at Winthrop constantly seek new ways to increase the quality and value of the Winthrop Experience for our students. Quite simply, that is the nature and character of Winthrop University.
It is in that spirit that we welcome public interest in all we do, and would look forward to having visitors to these pages visit the Winthrop University campus in person in the near future.
