President’s Welcome

Welcome to Wilmington College!

Dear Alumni and Friends of Wilmington College,

Trevor SeatedWelcome to Wilmington College’s website. Whether you are a prospective student just getting to know us or someone who has a more enduring relationship with our beloved institution, I hope you find what you are learning about WC informative and inspiring and I invite you to take an even closer look at us!

I am relatively new but totally committed to Wilmington College serving as its 19th President and I invite you to reach out to us with questions while you are exploring, and if you are future student, current student, alumni, parent or friend of the College, know that our community is dedicated to your success.

Wilmington College is rising, and we are excited about what you as a unique individual can bring to our campus community!

I am proud to share that WC offers a strong array of complementary academic programs in a student-centered environment that includes high quality faculty and staff, hands-on learning, real-world connections, and challenging liberal arts curriculum integrated with career preparation.  This is not new for us, since our founding in 1870, talented faculty and staff have been educating and inspiring students to make a positive difference through serving their communities.

We are a student-centered College, which means YOU are the reason we do what we do, and we hope to become or continue to be a part of your… life of service and success!



Trevor M. Bates, DHSc, AT
