A full-time mathematics lecturer for the Educational Opportunity Program, Paul Cummings has worked at the University since 1985, when he served as a part-time mathematics lecturer for the School of Business. Passionate about his field and considered to have outstanding teaching gifts, Cummings earned the Outstanding Achievement Award from Disabled Student Services at UAlbany in 1994. He was elected to Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges in 1989-1990.

“I have seen this man make mathematics come alive for many an uncertain undergraduate student,” wrote Maritza Martinez, the assistant dean of the Office of Academic Support Services. “His office is always overflowing with students seeking his knowledge. Every office hour is well utilized by students either currently in his course, or former students for whom math came alive under Paul’s tutelage. They come from all backgrounds, they come from all different levels, and they continue to come to Paul, because in him they found not only a fantastic teacher, but a willing mentor and friend.”
