Vibrant Campus Community

We’re coming together to make a historic investment in residential life, community-building, wellness and athletics to ensure that students connect and flourish.

Vibrant Campus

A Whitman education is a people-intensive experience. Learning, living and leading together cultivates self-discovery, cultural awareness, empathy, cooperation, humility and creative problem-solving.

Residence Life at Whitman is at the heart of cultivating a vibrant campus community and provides opportunities for students to connect, engage and build meaningful relationships and life experiences. —Cheysen Cabuyadao-Sipe ’23, Resident Director

The Opportunity

Looking forward, we want to be purposeful about the spaces and opportunities we create for students. That means not only enriching traditional classroom settings but also investing in new residence halls, sports and recreation facilities, and spaces dedicated to student health and well-being.

As a key commitment of Upward Together, Whitman is aiming to fund the largest-ever philanthropic investment in its physical campus: a junior-senior residential village.

As we intentionally invest in people, places and programming, we can create deeper connections and increased well-being, strengthening our learning and living communities.

An Exciting Vision for a Junior-Senior Village

As part of Upward Together, Whitman is setting the stage for a transformational addition to campus: a junior-senior residential village. The Board of Trustees, along with dedicated alumni and friends of the college, made initial gifts to begin to realize this innovative plan for enhancing student life, promoting community engagement and providing a bridge to a more inclusive future.

Plans for a vibrant community.
