    Antonia Keithahn (she/her/hers) joined Whitman College in 2015, and moved into her current position in 2017. She views her role within a social justice context and her long-term goal is to bring greater awareness to access barriers on our campus so that they can be acknowledged and dismantled. Antonia's background is in secondary education, having received a Master's in Education (in Curriculum and Instruction) from the University of Illinois in 2013. She also holds a BA in History from Reed College after a disastrous attempt at a combined Chemistry-Art major that lasted about a semester and a half before collapsing entirely. Away from the office, Antonia enjoys several hobbies including embroidery, roller derby, singing and playing guitar, intersectional feminism, and comfortable pants.

    I grew up in the Seattle area, received a bachelor's degree in English from Whitworth College, moved to Colorado to attend graduate school at Colorado University and Naropa University, and then worked for 33 years in Boulder County promoting health and inclusion for children and adults with developmental disabilities. I'm excited to be working in an assistant role for the ARC. My goal is to help support student learning in whatever way I can, as well as to to keep learning and challenging myself. Outside of the office I enjoy reading, gardening, yoga and dance. I'm especially fond of long walks and afternoon naps with my two dogs.

    Academic Resource Center Intern

    Hello! I am a current senior at Whitman pursuing an English major with biology and creative writing minors. I am from Ogden, Utah where I grew up dancing around the mountains. I came to Whitman with a wild assortment of interests and am currently figuring out the delights of intersecting all of my passions—salamanders, writing, being outside, dancing, teaching, and laughing with friends. As part of the Academic Resource Center staff, my goal is to make learning exciting and accessible rather than cumbersome and difficult. I am excited to meet you!
