Curt Galloway has spent almost 40 years in the field of student development. He believes in providing young women and men with the very best resources and opportunities for engagement inside and outside the classroom so they may be successful as students and, ultimately, as citizens and future leaders.
In his work at St. Kate’s, Curt is involved with students at all degree levels and across all student populations. He enjoys helping others discover their values and passions, and find their voice and identity. This characteristic also extends to his student affairs team and other University colleagues across campus. Galloway has a reputation for challenging and encouraging those he meets and works with to keep growing, particularly in the areas of interpersonal communication, and leadership and critical thinking skills.
This proud father of three grown children joined St. Kate’s in fall 1992 as director of student life — and he remains at this University because of its unique, tripartite mission: Catholic, women and the liberal arts.
“I’ve got the best job at St. Kate’s!” he says. “I get to work with students from the moment they begin their academic career until they cross the stage with their diploma in hand, and to assist them through not only some of most trying and challenging moments in their lives, but also some of the most joyous.”
Galloway holds both a Master’s of Science in College Student Personnel and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Western Illinois University, and an Associate of Arts from Springfield College in Illinois.
He is active in regional and national professional organizations, including the Association for Student Affairs at Catholic Colleges and Universities, and has served as past president of the Upper Midwest Region–Association of Colleges and University Housing Officers.
