New name, same location: The Career and Community Engagement Center is located in Reid Campus Center.

The Student Engagement Center’s New Name Reflects an Ongoing Mission.

For years, the passionate and responsive staff at Whitman College’s Student Engagement Center has supported Whitman students and graduates in connecting their classroom learning to pursuits out of the classroom. They’ve helped hundreds of Whitties follow their passions, grow as leaders, secure meaningful internships and work, and find their purpose in community causes and roles.

Thankfully, none of that is changing—in fact, thanks to the just-announced $5 million Serrurier Life After Whitman Endowment, the center will be able to provide enhanced support with personalized career coaching and more paid internship placements.

However, as of today, this welcoming place of support, growth and possibilities, will be known as the Career and Community Engagement Center. "This new name reflects the many ways the center supports students as they explore their career possibilities, the various programs the center facilitates to create connections between students and the wider community, as well as work being done under the community-engaged learning grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation,” says the center's director Noah Leavitt.
