Laura Cummings joined the Academic Resource Center in July 2021, and is excited to engage with the Whitman community regarding access and support for all students. Laura has worked within Disability Services, broader academic supports, and community advocacy. She enjoys jumping in and doing a little bit of everything and, over the years, has learned a little bit about a lot of things. Fluent in American Sign Language she often talks with her hands (even when talking to herself!). Laura holds a M.Ed in Student Development Administration from Seattle University and a BA in Deaf Studies from California State University. At home Laura enjoys hanging out with her dog and crocheting.
