Whitworth University announced on Wednesday that it will begin offering courses in Spokane’s university district east of downtown next fall.

The private university in north Spokane will offer a bachelor’s degree in organizational management, as well as general education courses, on the second floor of the Sirti Building, 665 N. Riverpoint.

The courses will be offered in an accelerated format geared toward non-traditional students who wish to attend classes at night.

“Offering courses in the University District will give working adults access to our student-centered, high-quality academic programs closer to their homes or workplaces,” says Terry Ratcliff, Whitworth’s dean of continuing studies.

Washington State University, Eastern Washington University and Gonzaga University also offer classes on the Riverpoint Campus.
