Affiliated Institutes

Center for Belarusian Studies
Established in 2006, by David Swartz, first US Ambassador to Belarus and a graduate of Southwestern, the Center is the only one of its kind in the United States. The Center is intended to function as the focal point for Belarusian studies in the United States, bringing together scholars, students, individuals, organizations, universities, libraries, and governments committed to development of democratic Belarus.  This dovetails with the mission of Southwestern College at large: Leadership through service in a world without boundaries.

Institute for Discipleship
The Institute is dedicated to providing educational opportunities that nurture and enrich Christian leaders, lay and clergy, for effective living and ministry.
