A Message from Dr. Akande
Westminster is poised to enter a new chapter in its illustrious history that is sure to guarantee its place as one of America’s great liberal arts colleges. In the coming years, we will introduce new courses and academic programs that will make our graduates even more competitive. We will update and spruce up several of our academic buildings. We will also launch a more aggressive marketing campaign to significantly increase enrollment.
However, we will not accomplish any of these goals without the generosity of our alumni and parents, particularly the members of the President’s Club. The President’s Club is a critical part of our strategy for transforming our great college into an even greater one.
In addition to helping us attain these goals, your gift as a member of the President’s Club will provide support for scholarships, academic programs, faculty development, and student activities. Your gift also sets a wonderful example for our students and inspires them to become devoted Westminster alumni. So please join me and Westminster College’s alumni and friends as we begin this next chapter by becoming a member of the President’s Club. Your membership is vital to Westminster’s future prosperity.
President Benjamin Ola. Akande
