Thanks to the leadership and generosity of Whitman’s lead donors, our campaign has been launched with great momentum, and our sense of purpose as an institution has been reinvigorated.

“A Whitman education imbues our graduates with a passion for lifelong learning and gives them the skills and motivation to become leaders in their communities and the world. This campaign is about both continuity and change – it will reinforce our traditional strengths in academics and personal relationships and will transform the opportunities available to our students. Our alumni and friends will make this transformation possible – together, our leadership today will write Whitman’s history for years to come.”
George S. Bridges President of Whitman College
