Whitman College is a small liberal arts institution located in Walla Walla, Washington. All of our students receive Bachelor of Arts (BA) degrees in their respective fields.  During their time at Whitman, students balance a rigorous academic experience with community engagement and learning outside the classroom. 

Whitman’s Career and Community Engagement Center (CCEC) serves students by providing a variety of resources and helping them identify experiences that will cultivate their bright futures. Our team in the CCEC assists students in connecting with potential employers, jobs, and internships; applying for diverse, competitive fellowships and grants; and engaging with Walla Walla and their local communities in a myriad of ways. We also serve as an educational resource for students, offering networking opportunities and career education. We are eager to build relationships with employers and connect you to Whitman students.
