When your student comes to Whitman College, your entire family becomes a member of the Whittie Family. You can become more involved with the college through Parents Association, Parents Leadership Committee and Parents Fund. Being involved with activities for parents and families of Whitman students is a great way to show your support and stay up to date on college happenings.
All parents and guardians of current students are automatically members of the Whitman Parents Association. As a member, you'll receive special benefits, like the monthly digital newsletter, a subscription to Whitman Magazine and updates about events for parents in your area.
The Parents Fund is an annual campaign that asks parents for gifts that enhance every student's success. The current focus of support is the college's Student Engagement Center, which connects students with employers, paid internships, career counseling and advising, resume development, networking opportunities and opportunities to give back to the community through service and civic engagement.
Gifts to the Parents Fund help make possible the outstanding educational opportunities that are part of your student's experience and give Whitman a critical edge in providing the best possible liberal arts education.
