How Can I Help
I am here to answer questions about the Learning Center's programs, connect students to resources, and support our student employees.
Laura Waite joined the Learning Center team in August of 2022. Laura has a passion for serving others and is driven by a sense that equality is essential, so she works to ensure that everyone’s input is valued and needs are met. As the Learning Center’s Administrative Assistant, she assists with day-to-day operations and provides administrative support for all programs and initiatives. Laura also coordinates the Learning Center’s test prep programs and is responsible for the Learning Center’s social media presence.
Since graduating from the University of Missouri – St. Louis with a BA in Political Science and a BS in Public Policy and Administration, Laura has served in various administrative support roles including supporting a regional professional association since 2017. She is currently pursuing a Master of Education in Adult and Higher Education, emphasis in Higher Education at the University of Missouri – St. Louis.
Laura spends her time off-campus wrangling her four young boys with the assistance of her husband and their dog (yes, he tries his best to keep them in line). They enjoy spending time outdoors, playing tabletop and video games, and traveling. Laura makes a point to practice yoga at home daily and is usually in the middle of reading at least two books. On the rare night they have a babysitter, Laura and her husband love trying new local restaurants, so she would love to hear about your favorites!
