GRIT to Great

At the Academic Resource Center, we value the lifelong process of education and the drive to learn. Our mission is to support this process for all Whitman students by providing them with the tools to take charge of their individual academic experiences. We connect with students to help them determine and access the resources and support that will enhance their ability to succeed. To discuss various academic support resources available to you, please schedule a meeting with Rebecca Frost, Director of the Academic Resource Center and Disability Support Services HERE.
