Ally Whitman

​​​Student & Office Assistant

@CMU since :: 2012

Ally has worked at the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning​ since her first day attending CMU. She does everything and anything that she can to ensure that things are flowing smoothly all around the office. Her duties include prepping workshop and even​t spaces, scheduling events, creating Certificates of Implementation, ​managing the CETL Resource Library, assistin​g with the Great Lakes Conference on Teach​ing & Learning, and pretty much anything else that the staff asks of her. Somehow, she manages to do it all with a smile and a great sense of humor.

Whitman's favorite part of her job is getting to meet faculty members and make connections! She really enjoys all of the people that she works with. 

Ally is majoring in Communication Disorders and minoring in American Sign Language with an end goal of working as a Speech Pathologist with an ASL interpreting license. 

We're really hoping that she chooses to do her graduate work here at CMU. She's not going to be easy to replace.
