Welcome to Whitman. As president, I invite you to discover the treasures that define a Whitman education and that comprise the mosaic of relationships and opportunities we offer our students. We are an intentional community, one that takes great pride in the diversity, character and accomplishments of Whitman students, faculty and staff.

Since 1882, Whitman has distinguished itself as a liberal arts college dedicated to providing an academically challenging yet personal and supportive education. With its stunningly beautiful and serene campus in Walla Walla and its dedicated and caring faculty, Whitman continues to distinguish itself in preparing each of the college’s 1,450 students for positions of leadership in their adult lives.

Whether you are a long-time alumnus or friend of the college, a prospective student, or a casual online visitor, welcome to Whitman. Visit our campus and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to learn more about how you might become an active member of our community.
