Whitman Peer Listeners is a student run organization through the Whitman College Counseling Center. Our mission is to foster emotional well-being on campus through programming and peer-to-peer interaction. As listeners we provide an alternative to the Counseling Center and a resource for students. We are available to discuss any and all issues that students may be dealing with.

Peer Listeners are trained in a variety of areas including listening skills, problem solving, and crisis management. We are available to meet by appointment as well as holding regular open office hours in Hunter Conservatory. Our trained members are listed under Find a Peer Listener. Please email them or find them around campus. We serve as an open network and community to all students.

In addition to our role as listeners, the Peer Listeners sponsor events and programming on campus educate, raise awareness, provide resources, promote well-being and relieve stress. Please see Programming and Events for details on past and future activities.
