Whitman Today is an email newsletter produced by the Office of Communications. It is emailed each weekday to Whitman College staff, faculty and students.

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. for the following day's newsletter, though we may hold submissions for a later date according to space and editorial needs.
