Academic Advising

The Whitman College faculty see the relationship between academic advisor and advisee as a partnership between student and advisor, and we work with students as they identify and pursue their goals. Academic advisors help students understand a liberal arts approach to education and chart their path through the curriculum. We also support and connect students to resources, especially those related to academics, so that all students can thrive at Whitman.
