At UWest, we believe in educating the whole person. We were founded in 1991 as an alternative to the conventional university experience, integrating liberal arts traditions with a global perspective and drawing from Buddhist wisdom to create a community of collaboration and cooperation. Our graduates meet the challenges of an increasingly complex and globally interdependent world with creativity and compassion.

We are a community committed to learning with, from, and on behalf of others. UWest students seize the opportunity to realize their purpose and develop their personal values while following a personalized path to academic success. We think your education should be as unique as you.
