Education By Design
A Look at Winthrop’s Next Horizons
A key part of Winthrop University’s never-ending commitment to enhancing the quality and value of the Winthrop Experience for every student is how academic planning, facilities planning and even the organizational structure of Winthrop administration are intertwined in a very purposeful way.
At Winthrop, form follows function, so that administrators, faculty and staff work as efficiently and effectively as possible to achieve each new milestone, and campus planning and design contribute to the distinctive Winthrop Experience.
As a highly residential campus of exceptional beauty, Winthrop’s strategic planning process emphasizes creating environments for both intentional and casual interactions by members of the campus community. Contemporary facilities with a traditional feel are connected by a pedestrian friendly atmosphere that is conducive to students engaging in the full range of opportunities created to help them develop the capacities to live, learn and lead for a lifetime.
At Winthrop, we call this ‘education by design,’ and consider it a key part of why the Winthrop Experience has become nationally acclaimed.
