Summer Internship available through The Orchard Project

The Orchard Project: Growing diverse community college leaders for the future of education and work

Seeded by a partnership between Dr. John Baker, former interim WCC Vice President for Student Services, and Dr. Kathi Hiyane-Brown, WCC President, The Orchard Project strives to create an equitable pathway for students to explore leadership-level careers in community colleges. The Orchard Project offers quarterly internships designed to introduce students to executive level opportunities and build networks of support and mentorship.

The project's first internship position is hosted by the WCC Office of Advancement (Marketing and Communications and WCC Foundation). Learn more and apply at The Orchard Project webpage. Applications accepted through June 22, 2020.

Support urgent student needs

Quote: Our ability to respond is being tested

We are preparing to address unforeseen circumstances that threaten the health, well-being, and education of our students. Will you help us?

Here are ways we are responding now:

  • Students can apply for emergency funds for health, housing, and vital unexpected expenses
  • The Orca Food Pantry provides free and discrete food and hygiene items for students.

A gift to the WCC Foundation will have a direct, positive impact on our students, campus, and entire community. You may donate online, write a check, or contact us at 360.383.3320 or foundation@whatcom.edu to learn more about our urgent needs list.

We value your consideration in supporting our students who are most in need during this challenging time.
