Whitman Today is an email newsletter produced by the Office of Communications. It is emailed each weekday to Whitman College staff, faculty and students during the academic year and once a week on the first business day during the summer and winter breaks.

Submissions are welcome! If you have a professional or personal accomplishment to celebrate, an event to publicize or other content to share with the Whitman community, email whitmantoday@whitman.edu. Submissions should be 125 words or less. The deadline for submissions is 12 p.m. the day prior for the following newsletter issue, though we may hold submissions for a later date according to space and editorial needs.
