About the Student Engagement Center

We connect Whitman students and alumni to the communities and experiences that help them cultivate their futures.

The Student Engagement Center offers a variety of services to the Whitman community. From personal career advising to small-group workshops, the Student Engagement Center can help students develop skills that will be beneficial before and after graduation. We support students and alumni as they transition into effective professionals in their field.
