Community Outreach

At Whitman College, we believe that working with the community is the cornerstone of fostering civic engagement and enhanced learning in Walla Walla. We host numerous events and programs that contribute to the greater Walla Walla Valley and create experiential learning and service opportunities for students. We value the relationships we build with community partners.

Partner With Us

There are many ways that Whitman College can partner with nonprofits, educational institutions and other organizations in our community. Whether you are looking for volunteers, are interested in hosting an intern or Community Fellow or would like more information about how you can bring our programs to your group, we are here to help!

  • Sign up for the Community Partner email listserv that is hosted by the Career and Community Engagement Center, send an email to ccec_info@whitman.edu with your name and your organization. You can also visit the Recruit at Whitman College page for information around various ways to employ students. 
  • If you'd like to get involved or learn more about community-engaged learning at Whitman, contact the Whitman Community Engaged Learning and Research Initiative at celri@whitman.edu. For community-engaged learning at partner institutions in the Pacific Northwest, contact Emily Phaup.  
  • If you're interested in expanding or creating an education program with Whitman volunteers/tutors, one-time volunteers for a project during a service event, such as Tri-College Community Day, or if you're curious about how to develop a regular program with students who volunteer weekly or monthly, contact Director for Community Engagement, Abby Juhasz.
