Academic Advising Program

Mission Statement for Formal Academic Advising at Whitman

The Whitman 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.
