A Buddhist University in America?

Located in suburban Los Angeles, UWest (formerly Hsi Lai) was founded in 1991 as a contemporary, well-funded, Buddhist college. This graduate and undergraduate university is intent on educating, inspiring, and preparing students for a globally interdependent world.
The free exchange of ideas and Buddhist traditions across cultures is no longer restricted by borders. It is advanced by international collabora-tion, cooperation, and community. UWest is at the center of this cultural and intellectual exchange as a multidisciplinary and multi-cultural institution. This fully accredited college integrates the finest in liberal arts, business, and religious studies with a decidedly humanistic and global perspective.

The University of the West is a member of the:
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)
  • NAFSA: Association of International Educators
  • American Assoc. Collegiate Registrars & Admissions Officers
