The following are some appropriate links to various security-related Whitman departments, staff, and other information:
Dean of Students Office (x5158)
This office is involved with just about every aspect of student life outside the classroom. Interim Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students Kazi Joshua is responsible for all the student affairs on campus and is truly interested in making sure you have a satisfying experience at Whitman.
Associate Dean Barbara Maxwell is responsible for Greek life, Reid Campus Center, and new student orientation.
If you have any suggestions, grievances, problems, or questions, contact the Dean of Students Office.
Counseling Center (x5195)
The center offers personal and psychological counseling by professionally trained counselors to all students at no charge. Counselors assist individuals and groups with personal and academic concerns, career choices, interpersonal relationships, and other areas of concern or interest.
Health Center (x5281)
The Health Center is located on campus with a 16-bed capacity and is staffed by nurses around the clock. Although the Health Center is designed primarily as an out-patient facility for the management of minor injuries and illnesses, medical care will be provided for any and all condition which do not require hospitalization.
This network (and accompanying report form) was designed to simplify the reporting process for the survivors of sexual assault or other forms of sexual misconduct. It allows for the report to be filled out by either the survivor or a third party (friend, professor, staff member), and also allows for the report to remain anonymous. The use of this form should increase the accuracy of reporting the number of incidents at Whitman.
Peer Counseling Center
This Center is made up of Whitman students who are committed to listening and helping their peers. They are not professionals, rather they are students who have been trained extensively in peer counseling and who are trying to provide a beneficial service to other students. Although the Peer Counseling Center is an extension of the Whitman Counseling Center, it is entirely student-staffed and directed, and consists of people with natural rapport whose background is common to yours. This enables them to provide many services in an environment which is an alternative to conventional counseling. All services are private and confidential.
Safety Committee (Kathy Rogers x5946)
This committee is responsible for improving campus safety and disseminating information concerning campus safety. The committee is composed of representatives from the administration, the faculty, and the student body.
