Educated to Lead. Inspired to Achieve.

Welcome from the Assistant Dean

Dr. Kurt Jefferson, Assistant Dean for Global InitiativesI welcome you to the Churchill Institute for Global Engagement at Westminster College. As the “one-stop-shop” for all things “global” at Westminster College, we have many great programs, services, and events waiting for you.

Westminster is one of the very few colleges in the Midwest and United States that not only embraces and actively promotes international understanding and cultural diversity, but is also committed to making our campus a place where international experiences are actively pursued, achieved, and celebrated.

Please review the various areas of our webpages and see that we have many great opportunities for students to connect with our international community and programming in the Institute. From Study Abroad to the unique “Take A Friend Home” program to the award-wining Model United Nations experience to the Honors Program and our innovative twenty-first century global majors, Transnational Studies and International Studies, we offer students opportunities of a lifetime.

Our students grow in their global and cultural literacy, connect to places all over the world, develop leadership skills, and reflect and understand how their experiences prepare them for careers and life-long learning in the global community.

I am glad to welcome you and hope you will enjoy what you see and experience. Our close, caring campus community helps students achieve their academic and personal goals and dreams. Join us and see that an exciting new world of exploration, academic inquiry, and fun is waiting here for you!
