Noah Leavitt


Co-Director of the Career and Community Engagement Center | Career Coach

My time at Whitman has included six years as a faculty member (Sociology and General Studies) and over a decade in the Career and Community Engagement Center. I also serve as the college's pre-law adviser.

Every day I come to work and am fortunate to fill my hours helping students who want to make a positive difference in our complex, messy world pursue those aspirations. I can’t imagine a greater source of professional satisfaction.

As a liberal arts graduate (philosophy major) I have been able to create and enjoy a journey that has allowed me to make contributions in numerous realms including community organizing, program management, policy advocacy, lawyering, and teaching. Perhaps my most influential job was as a VISTA volunteer in the small coal town of Harlan, Kentucky the year after college, an experience that I think about nearly every day, three decades later. My wife, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Professor Helen Kim, and I have a son, Ari, and a daughter, Talia, who enjoy their own student lives in our excellent local public school system and who keep us on our toes 24/7!
