Spread over more than 1100 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just minutes from the vibrant city of Asheville, Warren Wilson College offers a unique liberal arts education to students from across the United States and many other countries.
For its entire history, the College has built a rich experience around the "Triad" of study, work and service. We believe these components of our program combine to educate the whole person, preparing our graduates for fulfilling and productive personal and professional lives. The Triad also underscores the College's deep commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability, connecting students to the landscape and the broader community. We also seek to connect the students to the global commons through participation in international and intercultural activities.
At Warren Wilson, students, faculty, staff and administrators all share responsibility for governing and sustaining the College community. As this catalog goes to print, I am eagerly anticipating my own membership in this community as I start my first year as the seventh President of the College. Some of you reading these words are also new to the College, while others of you are veterans. I hope that in the coming year we will all learn, work and grow together in this beautiful valley known to the Native Americans as Swannanoa.
