Who are we?
Jerico Cummings, Student Program Coordinator
Annie Venters, Student Program Coordinator
Annie grew up on the shores of Flathead Lake, and spends most of her days dreaming of sleep, cuddling with her dog, and drinking coffee. She passionately studies Community Health and Women's and Gender Studies. In 2014 she stumbled her way into the Diversity Awareness Office, the Writing Center, and the VOICE Center -- since then she hasn't been able to leave. She strongly believes in mutual respect across differences, and is working to create a community more inclusive for diverse experiences.
