Fairhaven College


Fairhaven, begun in 1967 as an experimental college within Western Washington University, exists today as an undergraduate learning community defined by five attributes: (1) interdisciplinary study, (2) student designed studies and evaluation of learning, (3) examination of issues arising from a diverse society, (4) development of leadership and a sense of social responsibility, and (5) curricular, instructional and evaluative innovation. Motivating students to develop their own goals for learning is central to Fairhaven's programs; involvement in research and independent study is an important part of the Fairhaven program. All students design a senior project as a culminating activity to their concentrated studies. Although these projects take varied forms, many involve independent research.
