On behalf of the Winthrop University family, I am happy to welcome you to one of the most diverse and dynamic communities in higher education today. We are a high quality university that embraces high impact practices and the rigorous reviews associated with specialized academic accreditation. We are proud of our safe campus environment, our integrated student services and our award winning student programming. We continue to earn national recognition for the civic engagement activities of our students, faculty, and staff.
Through our residential life experiences and the hundreds of leadership development opportunities that abound through Greek life, student organizations, student media, and the Council of Student Leaders, we have created a campus culture where students learn that to be a person of success, they must first be a person of value. In doing so, we know they will develop the integrity that makes them stand out as leaders in their communities and in their chosen professions.
Along with our acclaimed faculty and staff, I promise to do all I can to prepare your sons and daughters for career success, to be engaged in our democratic society, to be responsive to local and global concerns, and to be grounded in values that will give meaning to their lives.
We are honored that you have chosen us to educate your children. We will do our best on your behalf, and together, we can help them navigate the amazing journey toward their futures.
