Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Washington Territorial Legislature granted a charter to Whitman Seminary on December 20, 1859. On November 28, 1883, the legislature issued a new charter, changing the seminary into a four-year, degree-granting college. From the beginning, the institution has been governed by a Board of Trustees. The Trustees are responsible for the overarching policies that guide the trajectory of the college. Traditionally, committees of Trustees have concerned themselves with the major aspects of maintaining and running a college: finance, infrastructure, staff, curriculum, and student life.
