School Information
Connecting the heart of Oregon to the world, our innovative approach to education has been cultivating leaders since 1842. Willamette University is rooted in a history of creativity and inventiveness. We’re committed to rigorous education, excellent scholarship, and original thinking. We believe that higher education must not only prepare students for the future, but guide them toward innovating their own paths. The Oregon State Capitol grew up around Willamette University. Our students and graduates have always had a special connection to Oregon's state government and courts, helping them to prepare for careers as state, national, and global leaders. (source:
