Willamette is a small, highly selective private university of 2500 students, 1300 of them enrolled in our undergraduate College of Arts and Sciences; other schools include the Atkinson Graduate School of Management, the College of Law, and the Pacific Northwest College of Art, which enrolls both undergraduate and graduate students. As members of a small department in a small liberal arts college within a larger university, the faculty of English have the chance to design courses and teach outside of their primary specialization. This might include courses in literary research methods, creative writing, or pre-Twentieth-century literature, as well as courses contributing to interdisciplinary programs in Women's & Gender Studies, American Ethnic Studies, and Cinema Studies. All professors at Willamette are expected to teach non-majors as well as majors and to contribute to the College's General Education curriculum. Willamette has a teacher-scholar model for its faculty: tenure-track faculty teach 5 undergraduate courses per year, advise students, publish in their field, and engage in customary service to department, college, and university.

Over the past four years, 24% of our students were first-generation; 24% were Pell-eligible; and 33% identified as African American, Hispanic/LatinX, Native American/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, or multiracial.
