Strategic Planning for Whitman College—You’re invited to share your thoughts

Whitman embarked on a strategic planning process this year—aimed at envisioning what Whitman can become in the next 5-10 years. The Strategic Planning Committee is interested in the opinions of alumni, parents, and friends. Toward that end, we invite you to share your thoughts in response to this prompt: What are your highest aspirations for Whitman in the next decade and what would success in addressing those aspirations look like? Responses should be submitted no later than October 10, 2016. Click here to share your response.

Responses will be collated and reviewed and presented to the Strategic Planning Committee. In 2017, President Murray will visit a number of cities to host Presidential Town Halls in which the progress of the committee’s deliberations will be discussed in an interactive format. Please watch for announcements in future editions of Whittie News, on the Whitman Alumni Office web page, and in the mail.
