UWest is a nonprofit and WASC accredited liberal arts university just outside of Los Angeles, committed to providing a whole-person education, nourishing mind, body, and spirit, and facilitating cultural understanding and appreciation between East and West. This unique approach underlies all of our academic offerings, and gives UWest its unusual character. We believe in learning with, from, and on behalf of others, and encourage our students to forge their own path.
We’re excited that you’ve gotten here, now let us help you take your next step toward success!
You’ve got big plans for your future, but you want to decide how you get there. You don’t want to be beaten onto the beaten path. You want to blaze your own trail to a life that is rich and enriching. You need a school that understands your unique character and supports your individual path to success. You seek passionate and compassionate colleagues committed to learning with, from, and on behalf of others. You’ve come to the right place.
UWest is a small school with big ideas. We blend Western liberal arts traditions with Eastern wisdom and a global perspective to create graduates ready to shape and participate in a brighter future. We believe in whole-person education, nourishing mind, body, and spirit. And we think that your education should be as unique as you are.
