Willamette was the first university in the West at a time when the westernmost state was Missouri. Rooted in a history of creativity and inventiveness, we’re committed to rigorous education, excellent scholarship and original thinking. By providing a learning environment where subjects converge and collide, we teach students to generate new ideas across industries, preparing them for the careers of the future.
We encourage students to put their ideas to work as researchers and interns. Whether they’re designing cancer-fighting molecules on campus or spearheading legislation across the street at the Oregon State Capitol, our students are creating knowledge and serving as catalysts for positive change.
The Willamette community contributes more than 70,000 service hours annually. We believe ideas bring us together, and that caring for each other helps us live meaningful lives. Our diversity makes us stronger, and our ambitions help us promote the common good in an interconnected world.
