Since earning accreditation in 2006, University of the West (or “UWest”) has continued to grow in enrollment and significance. UWest, which is centered in Rosemead, California, has grown to 348 students as of 2014 spring semester.

The school was founded by Buddhists but is designated as an undergraduate and degree institution.
