Program History

Established over 15 years ago, the WINS program was designed to provide international education experiences for U.S. undergraduate students across multiple institutions. King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania was the first WINS partner. Webster University has always worked to meet an unmet need in higher education, and the WINS program continues in this important tradition.

Webster's mission is to ensure "high quality learning experiences that transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence." Founded in 1915 in St. Louis, Missouri, by Sisters of Loretto, a Catholic religious organization, Webster College (originally named Loretto College) was one of the first Catholic women's colleges west of the Mississippi River. Webster was progressive for its time, providing higher education to women, and has continued this spirit while expanding programs around the world.
