Nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, just a few minutes from the culturally rich city of Asheville, Warren Wilson College provides a first-rate liberal arts education to students from across the United States and many other nations.

For its entire history, the college has had a distinctive identity that is reflected in its mission, its curriculum, and its sense of community. We believe that work, service, and study combine to form a powerful "Triad," which prepares graduates for productive personal and professional lives. Also, we stress the importance of environmentalism and sustainability issues throughout the College.

And finally, we believe that all students should be encouraged to take part in intercultural and international activities that enhance their college experience. The Triad, the concern for environmentalism, and the focus on international/intercultural experiences all give the College its special identity.

In addition to its distinctive mission, the College benefits from having students, faculty, staff, and administrators who view themselves as peers within the college community. Together, all of us at the College are committed to creating an educational environment unlike any in the nation.
