College staff are employed at will. Neither an initial employment offer, nor any statement or representation in this manual or in any other college communication should be construed as an implied contract for permanent employment. Just as you may end your employment at any time for any reason, the College reserves the right to terminate your employment with or without cause.
Whitman College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, age, marital status, national origin, the presence of any physical disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, or any other basis prohibited by applicable federal, state, or local laws.
Whitman College may modify or delete any of the policies in this handbook when it becomes advisable to do so. Announcement of changes will be made through standard communication channels, but advance notice may not always be possible.
