University Leadership

The work of the Sisters of St. Joseph and the mission of the University inspire those who lead St. Kate's.

President's Cabinet

The purpose of the president's cabinet is to bring together the leaders across the University to engage in healthy, current exchange of information and viewpoints on key decisions and opportunities the University faces. Under the direction of the Office of Institutional Research, Planning and Accreditation, the cabinet also acts as the internal quality assurance group to assess the progress of the Strategic Plan for our HLC Assurance process.
